Become a World Explorer
Looking for an experience off the beaten path? Why not visit Morocco? Even though it’s just a skip, hop and ferry ride away from Spain, Morocco is culturally distinct and full with rich, fascinating and ancient history dating back 12 centuries. The Berbers, Romans, Phoenicians, and Byzantines all inhabited Morocco at one point or another. The Muslim country was more recently colonized by the French, Spanish and Portuguese up until Morocco gained its independence in 1956. There are so many things to see in this colorful country filled with majestic palaces, interesting museums, flavorful cuisine and stunning natural landscapes.
Our trusted partner agency is located in the capital city of Rabat. They can arrange volunteer opportunities to teach English in Morocco. Our volunteer English teachers live with a host family and teach English at a local school or summer camp. World Explorers in Morocco is a more structured version of our normal program because our participants will be teaching English in a classroom environment and not just in the home.
Although the Moroccan Government is working hard to improve literacy and promote professional development through the National Initiative for Human Development (NIHD), a large percentage of Moroccan children and teenagers are not given the chance to acquire marketable skills. These young Moroccans are aware that speaking a second language will enable them to further their education and integrate well into the job market. Volunteers work with underprivileged children, providing training in English, French and information technology. Volunteer tasks include running small workshops, assisting local teachers and organizing educational games and activities. Volunteers can also assist in summer camps.
Learning Arabic? We are very excited to be able to offer placements in an Arabic-speaking country. Arabic classes can be arranged through our partner agency in combination with your teaching position for an additional fee. Cultural Immersion is the best way to learn a language, so what are you waiting for?
WE calculated the price for two scenarios. The first scenario considers your choices above. The second scenario is the scenario that offers the best value. We also compared our prices with two other options. A hostel-stay with 3 meals per day and a hotel-stay with 3 meals per day. For the hotel-stay, we considered 1-2 star hotels because we learned from past World Explorers that most of them are traveling on a budget. However, a home-stay (staying with a host family) is substantially better than a 2-star hotel-stay when all amenities, comfort, and support are considered. Aside from that, you will be staying with people who care about you, who will be sharing their culture with you, and who will embrace you as part of their family. These, as part of your life-changing experience, are priceless!
You will be traveling abroad on a tourist visa; hence, in most countries, you can only stay up to 90 days. We understand you might want to stay longer and we designed the World Explorers program to meet your desire. Instead of staying over 90 days in a country, we allow you, the World Explorer, to participate on a second adventure on a different country. And that is not all. You can actually participate as many times as you would like (some exclusions apply). Please contact a World Explorers customer care specialist for more information.
