Bilingual Education for Central America (BECA) is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 school year.
BECA’s mission is to provide quality bilingual education to the educationally disenfranchised while fostering meaningful cultural exchange. Their model is built on partnership between Hondurans committed to quality, progressive education and international volunteers interested in a truly meaningful cultural collaboration. BECA is made up of 3 community-run schools, 600+ students, 175 graduates, 230+ program alumni.
- Travel stipends are available on a case-by-case basis as well as needs-based scholarships to ensure that anyone who wants to make this commitment can do so.
- There is no fee to volunteer with us and applicants need not be certified teachers or fluent Spanish speakers.
- BECA provides shared living accommodation; a daily food stipend, temporary residency status, 6-week Intensive Summer Teaching Training, ongoing teacher support, and professional development opportunities.
** Volunteers are responsible for their flights to Honduras, health insurance to cover them while they are in country (if needed), and background check costs.
