Spending a summer immersed in another culture in a European town sounds like a dream to many. Through the non-profit volunteer teaching organization, Wisconsin International Educational Scientific Cultural Organization (WIESCO), that dream has become a reality for people from a wide variety of backgrounds and occupations. Teachers, college and high school students, nurses, police officers, insurance agents, opera singers, lawyers, and many others have served as volunteers in WIESCO's English language and culture programs. Our programs focus on teaching American English and culture to students ages 10 to 18.

The program lengths vary from one to three weeks. They offer volunteers extraordinary opportunities to meet and interact with students and their families. Each program incorporates several excursions and sightseeing experiences.

2016 – Another Successful Year for WIESCO!

We held five programs in four countries with the help of 35 American teachers, six American student assistants, numerous host coordinators and assistants, and about 400 teenage students. Thank you to everyone for your support and efforts in: Bozkow, Poland (5th anniversary), Poznan, Poland (2nd anniversary), Daugavpils, Latvia (18th anniversary), Siauliai, Lithuania (6th anniversary), and our brand new program in Vanadzor, Armenia!

Positions are still open for the Native Speaker at our School program. Check back in December for information on volunteering with WIESCO in 2017!
