The mission of Learning Enterprises is to expand people’s horizons through conversation-based English language classes taught by American and international volunteers. Since 1992 we've recruited hundreds of college-age volunteers to spend their summers teaching conversation-based English language in rural villages and developing areas around the world. We are entirely staffed by volunteer alumni who return to LE to continue serving our mission of expanding horizons and spreading volunteerism around the world.
Our mission is guided by five principles:
- Fostering creativity in children and adults
- Expanding horizons through access to the English language as means of communication
- Promoting understanding through cross-cultural exchange
- Spreading the spirit of volunteerism
- Providing substantive and rewarding work experience for young people
Everyone who works for Learning Enterprises is a volunteer, whether they are the ones teaching English or the ones planning the LE programs. We continue to exist because volunteers who believe in the mission of LE spend their time and enthusiasm supporting what we do. Your generous gift will be used to provide both pre-departure and in-country training to our volunteers, supplies for our classes and general support for our programs in 13 countries this summer. Your gift will help ensure that our program remains one of the only organizations in the country that charges no program fee, allowing a diverse group of students to participate.
