Our teachers have consistently called it one of the best decisions they’ve ever made.
Step away from the electronics that constantly distract us; live in the Himalayas and remind yourself of what you truly value. Build lasting relationships with your students and community and travelers from around the world. Wake up with tea, a view of the tallest mountains in the world, and the knowledge that you are improving lives!
Gain valuable experience in the classroom teaching English. You will teach up to four classes while improving your ability to lead large groups of people and develop your public speaking skills. Do you have additional talents or skills? If so, you may be able to use or teach them.
Besides building valuable skills teaching English as a second/foreign language, your Trek to Teach experience can contribute to your own education. Our program often serves as a study abroad or internship with universities around the United States. We will do our best to ensure that the experience is as useful and rewarding to you as possible.
Trek to Teach also offers many additional opportunities for exploration. Near the villages are hot springs, gorgeous trekking paths through forests and river valleys, and trekking at world-famous Annapurna Base Camp and the Annapurna Circuit. You’ll have plenty of natural beauty to keep you busy. Nepal also offers unique areas like Everest Base Camp, Chitwan National Park, and Kathmandu’s Monkey Temple (Swayambhunath), which you can easily travel to before or after your time teaching.
Trek to Teach is an opportunity for you to live in the moment and remember it for a lifetime. Be adventurous, explore the world, and enjoy yourself – 20 years from now, how will you want to remember your youth?
