Description

The people of Mongolia want to direct their own advancement, and consider the Peace Corps philosophy, which emphasizes the capacity-building of local people, as beneficial for the country’s development. Essentially, Volunteers help host country organizations meet their needs by providing assistance in areas where there are insufficient technical skills or knowledge. You are expected to work in the area of English Education, which is one of the Mongolian government's top priorities. Mongolian people think that English is the key to thousands of doors; in other words, English represents the gate to the world.

The Mongolian government and Peace Corps Mongolia are partnering to enhance the quality of English instruction by teaching English to students in secondary schools, colleges and universities, improving the training of English teachers and developing and strengthening English language learning resources. English Education Volunteers are partnered with a Mongolian English teacher, where they will lesson plan and co-teach English classes. Outside of the classroom, Volunteers and community members will work with youth facilitating extracurricular activities such as clubs and mentoring programs in order to promote youth leadership and life skills.

The English Education project is the largest Peace Corps project in Mongolia, reflecting the priority of English Education by the Government of Mongolia. In 1992 the Mongolian Ministry of Education, Culture and Science adopted a resolution whereby English, along with Russian, was declared one of the main foreign languages to be taught in all educational institutions.

English is now being taught at all secondary schools where there are English teachers and at higher educational institutions as well. There are currently approximately 2,200 Mongolian English teachers working in secondary schools. The skill levels of English teachers are varied, particularly in the countryside, where there is a significant shortage of both skilled teachers and relevant resources.

Peace Corps began its program in Mongolia in 1991, the same year the United States Embassy opened in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. Since that time, more than 1,200 Peace Corps Volunteers have served in Mongolia as teacher trainers, TEFL teachers, community economic developers, and environmental and health specialists. Your input in implementing the objectives of the Mongolian government and the Peace Corps is essential to the success of Mongolia. Currently, approximately 100 Volunteers are serving across all provinces in Mongolia and you could be a member of the 31th group of Volunteers to serve in Mongolia.
