Building a World Community

Face to Face, Hand in Hand

Spending a summer immersed in another culture and a place a little off the beaten path sounds like a dream to many. Through WIESCO that dream becomes a reality.

Teachers, college students, nurses, lawyers, veterans, businesspeople, retirees and others make up the volunteer staff of the non-profit teaching organization WIESCO.

Since 1974, WIESCO has offered volunteers the extraordinary opportunity to meet and interact with students and their families in Armenia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Brazil and Macedonia through English language and culture programs. 

Summer Programs are one to three weeks in length and are typically for middle and high school students.

There also is the Native Speaker Visit Program during the school year where a volunteer  travels between schools in the area, at the time, and for the duration of their choice.
