Paid staff





A lack of cultural tolerance and access to cutting-edge knowledge are raising challenges in societies worldwide. TeachSurfing co-founders Migan & Gretta are originally from Armenia & Romania. They both studied software engineering and are currently living & working in Germany. When visiting back home, they wanted to share their professional knowledge to inspire youth in their home countries. But there was a lack of a direct and flexible way to contact with schools and NGOs who are interested to learn from their expertise. During One Young World 2012 summit, Migan & Gretta met many like-minded people from all around the world and were inspired to build a world-wide network of passionate people who want to share knowledge and experiences... This is how the TeachSurfing idea was born.
