Perks
How will I benefit from volunteering?
You will gain invaluable teaching and leadership skills as well as experience working with children - specifically English Language Learners. Volunteering will also help you grow your creativity, adaptability, initiative, public speaking skills, confidence, and comfort working virtually - an increasingly prevalent skillset.

How will Outreach360 Virtual English Academy students benefit from my service?
English is a highly sought-after skill for our students and their communities. Opportunities to learn from native and near-native English speakers are few and far between, not to mention costly, so this is an unparalleled service you can offer. The time you spend with students will have an incredible impact on their education and inspire them to get excited about furthering their English learning. Not only that, but the program donation you raise provides this opportunity at no cost to our students' families. We can guarantee that taking time out of your week to practice English with our students will make a real difference.
