ENHANCING PUBLIC DIPLOMACY ONE TEACHER, ONE STUDENT, ONE RELATIONSHIP AT A TIME
TPG Cultural Exchange, LLC is a US Department of State-designated Teacher Exchange Visitor Program Sponsor. As a team, we have supported over a thousand teachers pursue cultural exchange programs in the United States. Our program prepares students in both the U.S. and in countries around the globe for success in the 21st century by offering world-class instruction while enhancing global awareness and cultural exposure.
We recruit highly-qualified and culturally-curious teachers from around the world and then collaborate with host schools in the US to identify the right placement opportunities for schools, and the right host schools for teachers. Our teachers come from countries as distant as Jamaica, India, the Philippines, and Ghana, united by a desire to expand their horizons and a dedication to the craft of education. All of our teachers have the equivalent of a 4-year degree in Education and focus on subjects from math and science to social studies and elementary education, as well as their native languages including Spanish, French, Chinese, and more.
Why Choose Us?
Our goal is to ensure every teacher is ready to build lasting relationships with their students from the first day they step into the classroom and provide cross-cultural instruction. We provide our teachers with professional development and support both before they reach the United States as well as for the duration of their time here. TPG Cultural Exchange’s qualified staff is always ready to lend an ear, a helping hand, or whatever it may take to help them succeed.
