Requirements for the applicant
Job description

ETIV is offering a fantastic opportunity for volunteers or interns interested in Teaching English as a second language to the children and youth of Itacare. There are also possibilities to offer English classes to adults here as well. Teachers receive support from the English Project Coordinator or an ETIV staff member (if a coordinator is not available), although it is highly recommended that applicants have some background or/or experience with teaching English prior to applying for this position.


The ETIV English Program focuses mainly on targeting low income children and youth who attend public schools and/or who would not otherwise have the opportunity to receive quality English classes. Most of our classes are not conducted in a local school, but instead we have classes running in a variety of public spaces including a local church, capoeira school and our own learning space next to the ETIV volunteer house.



Main Responsibilities:

  • To support development of the curriculum while also preparing the lessons plans and documenting everything so that it can be re-used and built upon in the future.
  • To take attendance and document outcomes including successes, challenges and best practices for every class.
  • To teach many of the core values that lay the foundation for ETIV's work, also listed on our website.


  • Requirements:

  • Volunteers must work at least 20 hours per week
  • Basic Portuguese
  • Experience teaching English
  • Minimum 1 month time commitment


  • Highlights:

    ETIV do Brasil is located in the beautiful fishing and surfing town of Itacare, Bahia. Our mission is to support development and environmental conservation in Brazil, with a deep focus on youth development.


    Most interns can receive university credit while interning with our NGO and some are even able to receive a University stipend or grant to help cover their expenses. We can offer ongoing support and supervision and can help organize taxi pickups, local accommodations and even Capoeira or Portuguese classes. All volunteers and interns will also receive our Pre-Departure Powerpoint, and Introduction to the NGO, a tour of Itacare and life insurance during their internship at the NGO.


    These positions are perfect for someone seeking meaningful volunteer or internship experience in a stunning location with a thriving Afro-Brazilian culture. Itacare is unique place where the Rainforest meets the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful beaches, jungle, coconut trees, waterfalls and wildlife abound.
