Engage - Teacher Training Program (TTP)
In our Teacher Training Program, you have the unique opportunity to pour into the lives of local educators who will ultimately impact hundreds and thousands of students throughout their own professional careers. Although these teachers come from a variety of different backgrounds, all come with the desire to improve their English skills and learn from their ELIC teachers.
Engage - Culture
Spend 6 weeks diving into learning about and loving a new culture. Your team will spend time learning the local language, connecting with the community, and building lasting friendships with local college students.

Participants must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate program.
