English Opens Doors Program

New 2018 Volunteer Service Available!

The English Opens Doors Program and the National Volunteer Center are excited to announce that we have officially opened a second volunteer service for the Chilean spring semester of 2018: Volunteer Service 4 (“VS4”)!

This 1-semester service runs from August 6th through December 9th, 2018 and provides native and near-native English speakers an incredible opportunity to work alongside Chilean English teachers in vulnerable public schools throughout the country. Accepted VS4 volunteers will be responsible for planning and executing interactive activities in 100% English, providing an immersive language and cultural experience for students.

VS4 volunteers will also participate in 1 week of “Spring Camp” as a part of their volunteer service. In this role, VS4 volunteers will serve as camp staff members for this fun-filled, English-immersion activity designed for Chilean high school students! Spring camps are an initiative being piloted during 2018 and will be similar to the Program’s extremely popular English Summer and Winter Camps.

The application deadline for VS4 is April 8th and given that candidates are accepted on a rolling basis, we encourage you to apply sooner rather than later! Our website is full of information regarding the volunteer role and benefits, placement opportunities, and previous volunteer experiences.

We invite you to explore, and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to email us directly at
