ABOUT US

TeachPTY is a social enterprise that offers travelers the opportunity to teach English to children and experience the Panamanian way of living as a resident rather than a tourist. In other words, the organization provides travelers the opportunity to stay in a friendly, safe and ‘home-like’ environment, as they contribute their time and energy volunteering. Volunteers help improve English language skills in underdeveloped communities by providing high-level interactive after school programs, where games are used to help children attending locals schools improve their skill-set to become better prepared individuals/professionals.

We receive funds from worldwide volunteers who want to benefit from an eye-opening personal and professional growth experience, which allows us to be a sustainable social enterprise.
