Teaching Program in Liberia

Teach English, Nursery, and Sports

Volunteer to teach children in some of the Liberia’s beautiful and remote locations where schools are often overcrowded and teachers are a limited, stretched out resource. You can become a volunteer teaching abroad on a wide variety of projects such as:
• Teach English, mathematics, science, et cetera to children in rural communities in Liberia
• Give children in Liberia access to an Arts education, or
• Become a qualified TEFL teacher in Liberia!

Wherever your passions and wanderlust lie, your options with our are endless!
Teaching is an important field to be involved in, as you have the chance to shape and redirect someone’s future into something brighter and better.

As a student with a passion for teaching you can start living your dream early on if you take a gap year or use your spring break to volunteer on one of our education programs. Although our teaching programs are popular among older volunteers too, students receive the added bonus of receiving academic credits for our programs.

Volunteers play a vital part in the success and long-term sustainability of our teaching projects. With the support of our volunteers, Experience Liberia and our partner organizations are able to provide these children with a safe environment and the support, supervision, socialization and education in a range of subjects including English, Maths.


Sports Coaching 

Currently, there is a shortage of physiotherapists in Liberia and, while there is a higher concentration of physiotherapists in the bigger centres, the rural areas tend to have far less assistance. In the rural areas, physiotherapy is dependent on community based rehabilitation providers, who are very often physiotherapy assistants, and operate out of organisations. Physiotherapists with experience working with people with a disability, neurological disorders, paediatrics, burns and amputees would find their skills and knowledge of particular use in this area of Liberia. However, anyone with general musculoskeletal and orthopaedic knowledge will also find plenty of work in the community. 

Placement Length

The average volunteer placement is around three months which allows volunteers to establish solid relationships in the community and contribute a reasonable amount of time to the projects. It is important to recognise that, although the volunteers will benefit enormously from their experience volunteering.

Program Coordination

It is very important to maintain consistency and continuity in relationships, projects and work already underway and, to this end, we have a Volunteer Projects Manager who is responsible for all volunteers.
