Apply to Teach!

Those interested in teaching for the 2019-2020 school year at the Mayatan School & Foundation in Copan Ruinas, Honduras.

Teaching at Mayatan is a challenge. Please do not apply to be a full-time teacher unless you are willing to commit a full academic year to living and working in Honduras. Positions at Mayatan require equal responsibility and professionalism as teaching jobs in the United States.

If you are looking for a shorter commitment, contact us about spending a few weeks or months helping out as a volunteer.
