Interested in traveling for a good cause? Join Peace Boat for the adventure of a lifetime!
We are seeking teachers with a passion for peace-building and international exchanges! Peace Boat's GET Program is now accepting applications for volunteer English and Spanish language teachers for the 105th Global Voyage and Peace Boat 2’s: 2nd Global Voyage.
The GET Program is Peace Boat’s language training program on board its ships, the Ocean Dream and Zenith. Volunteers travel with our students on board, teaching them practical English and Spanish through GET’s task-based learning approach. Teachers themselves have the chance to learn from onboard guest educators, consisting of academics, peace-builders, sustainability campaigners, entertainers and more, all while circumventing the entire earth by sea!
