Breaking the Barriers of “Voluntourism”: Respectfully Teaching and Interacting with Communities Abroad
The Quito Project is hosting a free educational workshop that is open to any student planning to teach English or volunteer abroad. At the workshop, students will learn from faculty experts about best practices for ESL and respectful international engagement, have the opportunity to share what they have learned from their previous experiences abroad, and receive resources to help them during their time overseas.
This workshop will not only help you prepare for your travels and lesson planning but will also ensure that you and your organization gain the tools to ensure that your initiative is successful and beneficial to the international community you are interacting with.

Free dinner will from Chela’s will be provided for all participants! Register here.
