Job title

Volunteer Teacher or Education Mentor

Job description

Volunteer as a teacher for refugee children or adults in Greece!

Ideal for teachers who have just received a qualification and want to develop their skills and make a difference. 2 months+

Volunteer as an Education Mentor.

Train and mentor to support grassroots education projects.

For experienced teachers who want to make a real difference to the life chances or refugees. 2 weeks+

Today in Greece:
• 60,000 people are stuck in camps and unstable accommodation
• ​57% of children are not in formal schooling
• Adults are in need of language skills to help them build a new life

Most of this need is being met by small, grassroots organisations. But as the refugee crisis fades from the headlines, they are all struggling to recruit teachers, and most have no qualifications or experience.

If you can stay for 2 months or more, we can match you with an organisation that is in need of a teacher.

If you are experienced:
• At refugeeEd, we pair experienced teachers with local organisations who need training and mentoring
• We prepare and support our teachers before, during and after their trips
• We work to ensure that everyone can access a good education

As a mentor you could:
• Work with an organisation to develop their programme, refining practices and procedures, developing curriculums and educational approaches
• Train and mentor teachers within the organisation
• Take on classes if you are there for a month or more.
• Run a tailored TEFL training programme at the end of your stay for multiple projects in the area


Volunteer teachers do not need experience. It's a great way to gain experience after getting your qualification.

Experience is necessary for mentors. This can include: years of teaching experience, DETLA, experience training teachers, experience setting up schools/programmes and/or curriculum design experience.
