Gather all necessary documents early. You’ll need a valid passport, a visa, and possibly a background check. Check with RVF International for specific requirements. It’s also smart to prepare some teaching materials and resources. While RVF International provides guidance, having your own collection of engaging activities and lesson plans can be very helpful.

Lastly, mentally prepare for the adventure. Embrace the possibility of cultural differences and be open to new experiences. This journey will be as much about personal growth as it is about teaching.
