About the English-Intensive Philippines Volunteer Position

In 2017 our English Intensive will be held in July/August.

English-Intensive is a short-term mission of 10+ days, with camps lasting 10 days. The English intensive is specifically for the children of East Asian pastors. It’s one of the best ways we know to reach the next generation for Christ and to encourage a deepening faith. By joining us as an English language teacher, you have the opportunity to:

*teach English in a cross-cultural environment. We use fun games and activities to teach campers conversational English.

*make deep, international friendships. We bond with campers and nurture those friendships over meals, through learning, and during one-on-one interviews.

*share Christ’s love. We demonstrate Christ’s love and share His hope through evening chapel times, testimonies, and small groups.

Your gifts and talents can be put to use on a team of people of all ages, 19 and over. Participants will need to raise an estimated $800 US (plus travel). The project fee includes the cost for: materials, curriculum, training, in-country costs, food, accommodations, insurance, and visas (where needed).

About English Camp The Philippines

English language skills are highly sought after in many parts of the world. Working together with a local team in Manila, TeachBeyond provides English language learning opportunities taught by native English speakers in a camp-like setting. National hosts and provide follow-up and discipleship.

All language services are provided with the understanding that the learning of English is part of a broader educational agenda which includes a spiritual and moral-ethical dimension.

We strongly encourage a full team of 5-10 individuals from one church or organization in North America or the UK to work alongside our partners. As an individual, we will add you to an already- formed team heading to the Philippines.

  • Country Summary (from the World Factbook)
    The Philippine Islands became a Spanish colony during the 16th century; they were ceded to the US in 1898 following the Spanish-American War. In 1935 the Philippines became a self-governing commonwealth. Manuel QUEZON was elected president and was tasked with preparing the country for independence after a 10-year transition. In 1942 the islands fell under Japanese occupation during World War II, and US forces and Filipinos fought together during 1944-45 to regain control. On 4 July 1946 the Republic of the Philippines attained its independence. A 20-year rule by Ferdinand MARCOS ended in 1986, when a "people power" movement in Manila ("EDSA 1") forced him into exile and installed Corazon AQUINO as president. Her presidency was hampered by several coup attempts that prevented a return to full political stability and economic development. Fidel RAMOS was elected president in 1992. His administration was marked by increased stability and by progress on economic reforms. In 1992, the US closed its last military bases on the islands. Joseph ESTRADA was elected president in 1998. He was succeeded by his vice-president, Gloria MACAPAGAL-ARROYO, in January 2001 after ESTRADA's stormy impeachment trial on corruption charges broke down and another "people power" movement ("EDSA 2") demanded his resignation. MACAPAGAL-ARROYO was elected to a six-year term as president in May 2004. Her presidency was marred by several corruption allegations but the Philippine economy was one of the few to avoid contraction following the 2008 global financial crisis, expanding each year of her administration. Benigno AQUINO III was elected to a six-year term as president in May 2010. The Philippine Government faces threats from several groups, some of which are on the US Government's Foreign Terrorist Organization list. Manila has waged a decades-long struggle against ethnic Moro insurgencies in the southern Philippines, which has led to a peace accord with the Moro National Liberation Front and ongoing peace talks with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. The decades-long Maoist-inspired New People's Army insurgency also operates through much of the country. The Philippines faces increased tension with China over disputed territorial and maritime claims in the South China Sea.
