Montana State University's Office of International Programs and the Montana Center for International Visitors are seeking volunteers to host international English teachers on Sunday, Feb. 10.

MSU is partnering with WorldMontana, the Bozeman Public Schools and MSU's Department of Education to welcome 20 secondary school English teachers from 17 countries throughout the world who will spend six weeks in Bozeman beginning Feb. 1.

Volunteers will pick up the teachers the morning of Feb. 10 and show them around Bozeman and the surrounding area for the day.

The teachers are from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Chile, Cote d'Ivoire, Dominican Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Ghana, India, Latvia, Morocco, Nepal, Oman, Poland, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine.

The teachers are part of the Excellence and Achievement Program, a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, which provides secondary-school teachers from Europe, Eurasia, South Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Western Hemisphere with an opportunity to develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills and increase their knowledge about the U.S.

The teachers will be partnered with teachers at Bozeman High School, Chief Joseph Middle School and Sacajawea Middle School for a 40-hour internship, and engaged in civic and community service throughout their program.
