If you are a non-U.S. citizen, the Teacher Exchange Program offers you a unique opportunity to learn different methods of teaching while also bringing an important international perspective to U.S. classrooms and students. The reciprocal benefits of this program are designed to foster greater understanding of different teaching methodologies as well as providing an opportunity to learn and teach much more than basic education. The program provides a rare chance to shape a new generation of leaders, exposing students to the ideas of inclusion and tolerance and enabling them to think with greater perspective. Through this program, qualified individuals may teach in accredited educational institutions (primary and secondary schools) for up to 3 years.
