TeachPTY is a social enterprise that offers travelers the opportunity to teach English to children and experience the Panamanian way of living as a resident rather than a tourist. In other words, the organization provides travelers the opportunity to stay in a friendly, safe and ‘home-like’ environment, as they contribute their time and energy volunteering. Volunteers help improve English language skills in underdeveloped communities by providing high-level interactive after school programs, where games are used to help children attending locals schools improve their skill-set to become better prepared individuals/professionals.
Our vision is to transform lives through experience and knowledge, improve communities and empower the kids.
TeachPTY: Empowering through education.
Help us build a better community by teaching English in Panama. We consider English to be the optimal exchange and educational language in the world today. Offering English to fourth graders, TeachPTY will help their integration into an ever-changing multicultural society, improve their chances for a higher education and break future barriers for business development and cultural exchange in international markets.
TeachPTY offers a new way to get to know a country by submerging yourself in it and helping a community by sharing places and cultures they would otherwise very unlikely discover, through the introduction of a tool as valuable as a language.
TeachPTY provides volunteers/travelers the opportunity to stay in a safe, ‘home-like’ environment, while having a positive impact in the community.
