  • Share your knowledge. Help volunteers have a great experience teaching with ILP just like you did.
  • Build your resume. As the leader of the group you will gain countless skills such as training, problem solving, and communication.
  • See the world. Go to a new country each time you teach.
  • Married? If you are a head teacher, your spouse goes for free as a volunteer to China, Russia, and Ukraine.


  • Miss the kids? Did you love your semester abroad and want to go again (but don’t want the responsibility of being a head teacher)? You can even reuse your lesson plans.
  • Want to save? Alumni receive steep discounts to most countries even if you’re not a head teacher.
  • Love to travel? Get more stamps in your passport.
  • Got friends? Refer a friend and you may get discounts for both you and your friends.
