Volunteer recruitment is one of our busiest periods and also one of the most uplifting. It’s an absolute pleasure to receive so many applications from teachers who want to give their time and expertise to our students.
Language Beyond Borders is its students and its teachers. Without you all, there would be no LBB. This round, we have broken all records. We’ve received 132 applications from teachers all around the world!
Together, we have a wealth of experience and knowledge. Some of us have been teaching for decades but never online, others are newly qualified teachers currently working online, many are education professionals: coordinators, teacher-trainers, curriculum-developers!
Some of our teachers are refugees themselves who have first-hand experience of breaking down that language barrier and integrating into a new society. And of course, much of our learning comes from our students with a world of knowledge and experience to share with us.
Within the LBB online community we learn from each other, lift each other up and support each other to be better at what we do, so that we can work together more effectively and constantly better serve those who we exist for.
Thank you for answering the call, and welcome to the team!
