Interested in Teaching, Traveling and International Development? Join Peace Boat for the adventure of a lifetime! The GET Programme is Peace Boat’s language training programme on board its ships, the Ocean Dream and Zenith. Volunteers travel with our students on board, teaching them practical English and Spanish through GET’s task-based learning approach. Teachers themselves have the chance to learn from onboard guest educators, consisting of academics, peace-builders, sustainability campaigners, entertainers and more, all while circumventing the entire earth by sea!
