Our program was designed to bring international teachers to the United States to share their cultures, transform lives and be ambassadors of change. We support our Participate teachers to unlock global curiosity in students and inspire to learn without limits. We currently place teachers in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Participate teachers are placed in full-time, salaried positions that include competitive health benefits and structured professional development opportunities

Share your passion. Share your culture. Open minds.
