United Planet (Worldwide)
Education is a birthright of all people, a key to providing a better life, and a vital bridge to enhancing cross-cultural understanding. United Planet’s unique Teach Abroad Quest program combines volunteering abroad, language learning, cultural activities, learning excursions, and special Cultural Awareness Projects to provide an incredibly fulfilling experience for volunteers and valuable support for communities in need. Volunteers can teach from one week to one year in schools, vocational centers and adult education centers around the world, from a local NGO in Amman, Jordon to monastic colleges in rural Yushu, Tibet. Program fee includes meals, lodging, training, a three to four day in-country orientation and insurance. For more information, please visit: http://www.unitedplanet.org/teaching-volunteer-abroad/ . United Planet is a member of The Brookings Institution Building Bridges Coalition and was selected by CNN as one of only ten organizations for its "Be the Change" initiative.
