The Atlas Corps Teaching Fellowship is an English teaching opportunity in Colombia for emerging professionals. This opportunity is a collaboration between Atlas Corps, Heart for Change, Volunteers Colombia, the Ministry of Education, and el Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje (SENA).
Through this collaboration, our mission is to facilitate the development of a prosperous Colombia where children and youth have the opportunity to receive a high-quality bilingual education. It is Colombia’s largest bilingual program. In its first year, 350 Fellows taught alongside 1,050 Colombian teachers, strengthening English education for nearly 98,000 public high school students in 33 cities. Today Fellows teach English in 38 different Colombian cities.
Atlas Corps Teaching Fellows learn leadership skills in an international context while advancing English language skills in Colombian youth. The benefits of this prestigious fellowship include a living stipend, health insurance, general and TEFL teacher training, ongoing professional development, and engagement in the global Atlas Corps network of over 500 leaders from 80+ countries!
In addition, Atlas Corps offers concrete professional development opportunities to our English Teaching Fellows, such as access to our network of over 500 leaders from 80+ countries, live-streaming of the VIP speakers at our Global Leadership Lab, and participation in our professional development webinars.Placement:
