Ambassador Hosts WorldTeach Volunteers

At his residence on August 11, Ambassador Lee Feinstein welcomed a group of WorldTeach volunteers from the U.S., Australia, and China who are in Poland this summer teaching English to students of all ages throughout the country.  The Ambassador praised the group’s volunteerism and emphasized the importance of international people-to-people contacts promoted by programs like WorldTeach.  WorldTeach is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded by a group of Harvard students in 1986 in response to the need for educational assistance in developing countries.  It also addresses a growing interest among people in the U.S. and elsewhere to serve, teach, and learn as volunteers overseas.
