Can I use TEFL to volunteer?
Yes, lots of people take a TEFL course when volunteering at home (with asylum seekers and refugees) or abroad as a teacher or at a community work project. There are many opportunities to use your TEFL qualification in a volunteering position.
Joining a volunteer teaching program or community development project with a TEFL qualification will certainly boost the impact you’ll have there. You’ll be more focused on effective communication methods having completed a TEFL certification.
