Why do I have to pay for a job?
Programs like this one in Vietnam don’t have direct government funding, so teachers who want to teach there must cover some of their own expenses. When programs cost money, we do try to keep them as cheap as possible (we are a non-profit!) but there are some costs associated with running a program when it does not have any direct funding. The program cost covers things like your insurance (with a $200,00 medical maximum), orientation and excursions, accommodation during orientation (and the TESOL course if you add that on), support staff, airport pickup, transfers, administrative costs of placement and support, etc. Program staff will be available to answer any questions before and after arrival, and you’ll have access to 24/7 support if needed while in Vietnam.


Program Includes:

- Full time, paid teaching placement in Vietnam
- Monthly salary of up to $1,800 USD
- One week comprehensive orientation upon arrival
- Accommodation during orientation (and the TESOL course if you add that on!)
- Pre-departure support and orientation from your experienced Greenheart Travel Program Manager
- Pre-departure webinars including cultural training & program logistics
- Airport pickup
- 24 hour in-country support for duration of the program
- International medical and accident insurance provided through Greenheart Travel for the duration of your contract
- Work visa arranged by the school
- “Culture Smart” Vietnam Customs and Culture Guidebook
