Taiwan TESOL (VOICE Missions)
Started back in 2001, Taiwan TESOL was born with the intent of giving Christian young people an opportunity to minister in the nation of Taiwan as volunteer English TESOL Teachers. What began as one team has turned into five teams spread across Taiwan, comprised of young people passionate about making His name known in this tropical country.
We're a group of Christ followers intent on sharing His love and truth with the people of Taiwan. We're all about teaching English, sharing love with those around us, and encouraging each child to learn more. We see each student as precious as we volunteer in some of this country's poorest areas.
When we are not volunteering in these areas, we might be visiting a local aboriginal village to share Bible stories, going to an orphanage and loving the kids who have no family, or helping to support our local church by offering English Bible studies. No matter what we do, we do it through Christ's love, knowing we are called to share Him with the beautiful people of the island.
The length of commitment is generally eleven months from the end of August until the end of July the following year. The TESOL teachers will be under contract with the local school, even though they are considered to be volunteers. Most districts provide a two-week vacation over Chinese New Year, where the teachers will have the opportunity to travel, learn about culture, religion, language, and history.
