INTERNATIONAL CIVIC ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM

Our International Civic Engagement Program program will give you the experience and exposure in the fields of social and startup entrepreneurship, education research, and non-profit organization management. Expect to work in a dynamic entrepreneurial environment and do your part in improving Vietnam’s system of education. What we need is someone who can become a bridge from the school to the organization or from network to network.
It is important for us to note from the very beginning that as a not-for-profit organization, Teach For Vietnam only offers lunches, accommodation (Teach For Vietnam’s house) and a small amount of stipend: 2,000,000 vnd/ month. We do not cover airfare. The minimum length of stay for a non-Vietnamese participant is 3 months.

 

Eligibility

While our International Civic Engagement Program is designed primarily for undergraduates, we also accommodate individuals with various work and academic credentials. Experienced professionals and graduate school students are welcome to apply to our Civic Engagement program. Teach For Vietnam believes that qualified, motivated, and committed individuals of different collegiate or professional backgrounds should have the chance to further our movement.

Your major of study and experience do not preclude you from this program. As with our Fellowship, we will gladly accept applicants from various fields, so long as the applicants are deemed qualified and can work with us for 3 months or longer.

I want my work to make a positive difference in the world we live in.

“I want my work to make a positive difference in the world we live in. It is in that spirit that I joined the School if Business and Economics at Maastricht University, which offers a specialisation on Emerging Markets. Now, in the context of my third year, I am required to do an internship in an emerging economy.

After I heard of Teach For Vietnam, my application quickly was sent, and one thing leading to another, I was accepted as an intern at Teach For Vietnam.
I believe that the mix of developed and developing countries know-hows and knowledge can create positive synergies and lead to a very beneficial outcome.

It’s been my honor and my pleasure to help the team and fellows to be all set for the journey to education and improve everything in Vietnam. “
