TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Language) training prepares our volunteers for the teaching that they will be doing at their team locations. We require that all our volunteers pass at least a 60 hour course.
At VOICE Missions we interact with young children on a daily basis. Child safety certification provides our volunteers with training on how to create a safe environment for their students.
Before coming to Taiwan, approved VOICE Missions volunteers have the option of getting a head start on their Chinese language study by taking part in online tutoring lessons provided by native Chinese speakers. After our volunteers arrive in Taiwan they will receive a local language tutor.
After arriving in Taiwan all VOICE Missions volunteers attend about a week of orientation before traveling to their team stations. At orientation the volunteers learn about Taiwanese culture and receive practical training for their teaching and ministry.
