Volunteer Teach in Honduras (room & board provided)

Employer Profile


Bilingual Education for Central America

Bilingual Education for Central America (BECA) is a 501©(3) not-for-profit organization founded in 2002. What began as an idea born in the homes of several Honduran families has since grown into three locally owned bilingual schools run in partnership with low-income communities in Honduras. BECA’s mission is to provide quality, affordable bilingual education to the educationally disenfranchised while fostering meaningful cultural exchange. Our volunteer-driven bilingual school model creates an environment in which Central American students learn from dedicated volunteer teachers, and those volunteers learn from the community in which they are immersed.

BECA does not pay our teachers for their volunteer service. We provide free housing, a modest food stipend, 6-8 weeks of professional teacher training, and a host of other supports.
