Rehabilitate Haiti

Mission: English in Mind Institute helps Haitian adults find long-term, meaningful employment by teaching them English.
Best for: People with classroom experience who love kids.
Your job: Spend mornings volunteering at orphanages and afternoons teaching English to adult students.
What we love: The ten-day volunteer trip includes a tour of Port-au-Prince and some beach time.
Good to know: A thing or two about teaching English. It helps if you know French, too.
Intensity level: Medium. Working with non-English speaking children and adults in poverty is intense but well-balanced with some beachy relaxation.
