Rewarding but challenging

TEFL Volunteer (Former Employee)

ProsGet to live abroad, they really take care of you, get to learn a new language, you'll always have a good story in future interviews.

ConsYou can get stuck in a bad situation. Peace Corps isn't very responsive to individual volunteers needs if their name is on the line.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
