Teach Beyond was born on the western Canadian prairies in 1954, when Leo Janz committed himself to bringing the gospel to post-war Germany. In 2006, the Board of Directors recast the vision to undertake new initiatives. Out of this came the phrase, “teach beyond,” which became the name of the organization in 2009.
As followers of Jesus we are an international organization providing transformational education to children and to adults. We provide teaching and learning services to all in order to promote holistic personal growth and enduring social benefit.
We ascribe to and embrace nine values that inform our beliefs, guide our actions, and define our character: faith, integrity, holiness, love for people, creativity, cultural relevance, congeniality, partnering with others, and excellence.
Teach Beyond - What We Do
Teach Beyond has affiliations with schools in Africa, Asia, Eurasia, Europe, North and South America, and the Middle East. Our members serve a variety of K-12 schools. Some focus primarily on missionary kids, others focus on international or expatriate students, and some focus primarily on the nationals of the country where the school is located. We also work at universities and seminaries, at English language centers (TEFL/TESL), in teacher education, and with refugees.
We are looking for teachers, administrators, dorm parents, resident assistants, maintenance and support staff, chaplains, professors, and others. We will provide you with assistance at every step from completing the application process to starting your overseas assignment. While you are serving with Teach Beyond, we provide professional development and mentoring to help you grow professionally and spiritually. In some regions, you will have opportunities to attend professional educators’ conferences. In the vast majority of our schools/projects, you will be joining a local team of Teach Beyond members that provides an additional measure of support and encouragement.
