ESL Teachers' Associations
Bucheon Volunteer Group helps organize, coordinate, and facilitate a number of volunteer opportunities in the Bucheon/Seoul/Incheon regions. There are a number of volunteer opportunities, such as teaching English to underprivlaged kids, mountain cleanup hikes, chat groups, fundraisers, and participants are also encouraged to use the meetup site to organize their own grass roots volunteering activities.
H.O.P.E. (Helping Others Prosper through English) is a new non-profit organization, established and run by Canadian teachers who are looking to make a positive impact on the communities where they live. HOPE's objective is to provide a safe and accessible place for underprivileged children to develop their English skills and equip them for a brighter future in further education, free of charge. HOPE is constantly in need of more volunteers as the number of children from low income families and orphanages is overwhelming. Volunteers should be able to make a minimum 3-month commitment.

KATE: The Korea Association of Teachers of English was initially and remains primarily an association for Korean teachers of English. However, it has, in recent years, opened to foreign nationals (native English speakers). KATE has two membership categories: regular membership and library/institution membership. The regular membership is open to specialists in teaching English, such as teachers, teacher trainers,
researchers, and administrators. Libraries, publishing companies, and other institutions constitute
the library/institution members. The annual membership fee is 30,000 won for regular membership and 100,000 won for library/institution membership. New members pay an initiation (admission) fee of 30,000 won. For overseas members the initiation fee is 50,000 won as is the annual membership fee. Check the website for contact details since the contacts are the board members. While the language of communication is, to a large extent, Korean guest speakers at conferences etc are often English-speaking experts.
