Teach Thailand Corps (TTC), established by the American-Thai Foundation in collaboration with Yonok Foundation, focuses on strengthening the primary and secondar school education systems in Thailand, particularly in high-need areas. TTC places American graduates in underserved Thai schools as English language teachers. TTC believes that language skills are an essential foundation for a better life and a better world. Thai students equipped with English proficiency are positioned to succeed in school, work, and life, and to make an impact in their communities. Teach Thailand Corps has learned from and adapted elements of the Peace Corps philosophy of service and learning.
Through strong relationships with educators and universities, Teach Thailand Corps works to recruit qualified and dedicated recent American college graduates who wish to spend a year teaching, learning, and living in Thailand. Candidates are selected carefully in a process of close communication with the universities- acquainting the universities with TTC's mission, needs, and the opportunity TTC presents to graduating seniors who wish to make a difference abroad. TTC selects graduates who have performed well academically and have exhibited and maintained a tradition of service and leadership throughout their college years. The American graduates who serve in the program make a difference through volunteer work, while also gaining the knowledge and experience of living abroad, including learning the language and culture of Thailand.
