Volunteer in an ESL program

Research the institution online for the most current details regarding the location, phone number, and contact person. Browse their website to learn more about their programs to ensure they are a good fit for your purposes. Remember that when contacting people, you are representing yourself as a professional and S-TESL as an educational partner. These organizations are under no obligation to help you. Please keep in mind that tutoring situations, while great for experience, do not qualify for the Field Experience component.

Colleges and universities are not listed here as they are far too numerous to list. We suggest visiting the website of the college or university you are interested in volunteering at and searching for ESL and/or Intensive English programs and locating the best contact for volunteer resources. Most colleges have volunteer information on their website. You can also try tools like VolunteerMatch to find opportunities in your region of interest.
