What We Look For
We look for candidates who seek to make a positive impact and experience a different culture. We look for people who have a service-oriented mindset, a sense of humility, and a diplomatic sensibility. The most successful teachers in our program are patient and flexible, and approach this experience with an open-mind and sense of adventure.

If you are interested in applying, please submit a resume and thoughtful cover letter, describing why you would like to participate in Teachers for Vietnam and why you think you would be a strong candidate.
