VolunQuest Programs

Applicants for the VolunQuest Program have the choice of one of three frameworks. There is a two or three week teacher certification program, a four week TEFL program with the option to add additional supervised teaching weeks and a five or ten month GAP Year Program that also includes a TEFL certification. Some blackout periods apply.

Gap Year TEFL Certification Program applicants can choose between the five-month or ten month program, which can begin any month of the year.

No undergraduate degree, Spanish or experience is required. All program hours are accumulative, meaning that a two or three week program can be supplemented with additional weeks in the future to gain your TEFL certificate.

All Prices are in USD.
