Our Philosophy and Mission

Teach Thailand Corps (TTC), established by the American-Thai Foundation in collaboration with Yonok Foundation, focuses on strengthening the primary and secondary school education systems in Thailand, particularly in high-need areas. TTC places American graduates in under-served Thai schools as English language teachers. We believe that language skills are an essential foundation for a better life and a better world. Thai students equipped with English proficiency are positioned to succeed in school, work, and life, and to make an impact in their communities. Teach Thailand Corps has learned from, and adapted, elements of the Peace Corps philosophy of service and learning.

Teacher Recruitment

We carefully select graduating seniors and recent graduates who wish to make a difference abroad. These are the students who have performed well academically and have exhibited and maintained a tradition of service and leadership throughout their college years. Successful applicants will demonstrate a strong desire to make a difference through volunteer work, gain unique experience through living abroad, and learn the language and culture of Thailand.

Our teachers, once selected, are provided with training for their roles, housing, a monthly allowance, and language and culture training. Additionally, TTC teachers are provided with ongoing supervision, consultation, and close support to ensure a successful living, teaching, and learning experience.
