Teachers for Vietnam is dedicated to building bridges between the peoples of Vietnam and the United States through higher education.
Welcome to Teachers for Vietnam! We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the teaching of English in Vietnamese colleges and universities. Teachers for Vietnam brings teachers of English as a Second Language (ESL) – recent college graduates as well as experienced, older ones – into classrooms which otherwise would not be exposed to native speakers. Teachers for Vietnam thus enriches the educational and pre-professional development of Vietnamese students.
An important component of our mission is promoting greater contact, understanding, and friendship between the peoples of Vietnam and the United States. American teachers at Vietnamese universities accomplish these goals in a direct, personal way and have a lasting impact on their students. The teachers themselves are also transformed by their experiences in Vietnam.
Currently Teachers for Vietnam supports teachers of English at Can Tho and An Giang in the Mekong Delta as well as in Hue and intends to send additional teachers to institutions of higher learning in other parts of Vietnam.
Teachers for Vietnam helps supports our teachers with travel funds and health insurance. Host universities provide salaries which cover living costs as well as free housing on campus.
