English Open Doors Program

Applications for 2017 have closed!

The application period for our 2017 school year services has officially closed!

This year we received 500+ applications from applicants all around the world. In addition to our typical countries like the USA, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada, we’ve also seen a considerable increase in applications from citizens of countries like Russia, Poland, Cameroon, Nigeria, and India, and even had interested candidates from countries like Zimbabwe, Turkey, and Nepal to Kyrgyzstan, and Egypt! Regardless of the countries of origin, the enthusiasm and dedication shown by this year’s applicants has been overwhelming and incredibly affirming. We are delighted that so many people across the world are willing to dedicate one or two semesters of their time to helping the English Opens Doors Program improve the quality of Chilean public education, specifically in English language learning. Without you, thousands of Chilean students would not have access this incredible benefit and resource.

Unfortunately, due to the unexpected budgetary restraints imposed in February, we were not able to invite as many candidates as we had originally hoped. For those of you who were unable to join us this year, please don’t be discouraged! We plan to launch our 2018 application cycle during September of this year (2017), so stay tuned to our website and to our social media accounts for updates!

We would like to extend a very sincere thank you to everyone for your interest, and for making this recruiting season a successful one.
