Teaching Interns

If you are a passionate volunteer with experience working with young children, we invite you to apply to be an English teaching volunteer. Teaching volunteers will play the fundamental role in our English classrooms where our students not only learn their ABCs, but are also prepared for their transition to the U.S.

If you are interested, please fill out our application form. Since our work with the children is built on a foundation of trust and attachment, we ask for a 12-week commitment from our teachers. Housing and 2 meals a day will be provided. Bethel staff will conduct interviews to see if you are the right fit for our team.

We hire full time ayis/nannies to look after our children. They are thoroughly trained and as a result of this, caring for the children on a day-to-day basis is not necessarily a need that interns need to fill.

Specialist Volunteers

If you are a specialist (speech and language, occupational therapy, physical therapy, counseling, etc.) interested in sharing your expertise, you may be able to commit a shorter time. We need specialists to travel to China and train Bethel staff, families or other special education professionals.

If you are interested, please fill out our application form.
