Ever heard of this program, how old the students are and how I can apply? When I followed the instructions and called the YMCA's HQs in Chicago I got two people on the phone who only seemed to marginally know what I was talking about. Sounds like it's gotta be at least better than Hess or Kojen. I want to teach adults at GLV (yeah, yeah , I know...) but this seems like a good way in. Anyway this is the only place I could find mention of it: http://www.jobmonkey.com/teaching/asia/html/job_sources_in_taiwan.html


Waiting to hear back from one of the Y's I e-mailed last night in Taipei.


YMCA's OSCY Program

The Overseas Service Corps YMCA program (OSCY) places 25 - 30 teachers in local YMCAs throughout Taiwan. Preference is given to those who have had training and/or experience in TEFL, who want to learn about Chinese culture, and who have knowledge of or a sincere desire to learn Mandarin Chinese or Taiwanese. You need to be in North America to apply for this program, and interviews take place in the United States.
