Updates on the Volunteer Initiative in 2022

First and foremost, a very healthy and happy 2022 to you and your loved ones from the English Opens Doors Program of the Ministry of Education of Chile!

In the recent past, we have received multiple emails from interested candidates requesting updates on the status of the (in-person) volunteer initiative in 2022, and for this reason, we’ve decided to post an update for all who are interested.

At this point in time, we can officially confirm that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be implementing the (in-person) volunteer initiative in the 1st semester (March to July) of the 2022 Chilean academic year.

While a restart in the 2nd semester (August to December) is possible, it will depend on the evolution of the pandemic in the coming months, and whether the necessary conditions that would allow us to implement the initiative are met in time.

We will continue to post updates as we receive information, but please don’t hestiate to reach out to us with specific questions at

Thank you so much for your continued interest in contributing to Chilean public education, and we hope to be in touch in the near future with updates!

On the other hand, we are currently recruiting International Volunteer-Monitors for our Online Extracurricular Workshops!
