Teach for Thailand

Teach Thailand Corps (TTC), established by the American-Thai Foundation in collaboration with Yonok Foundation, focuses on strengthening primary and secondary school education in Thailand, particularly in high-need areas.  TTC recruits and places graduates of American colleges in schools in less-developed provinces to teach English and other subjects.  Thai students equipped with English proficiency are better positioned to succeed in school, work, and life, and to make an impact in their communities – and in particular to better access opportunities arising from the upcoming ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Economic Community integration. TTC aims to fill the needs of underserved schools in English-language education, and offers an overall enhancement in the quality of teaching and community/school involvement.  In developing the program, we have learned from and applied elements of the Peace Corps philosophy of service and learning.

Spring-cycle Application Deadline: TBA, but expected to be mid-May based on past cycles.

Fall-cycle Application Deadline: TBA, but expected to be late December based on past cycles.
