EF Education First is a global education company focusing on language, academic, cultural exchange, and educational travel programs. We are 46,500 staff, faculty and teachers, working in over 580 offices and schools across 52 countries, and having a global presence in 116 countries. While we continue to grow, we strive to stay small to ensure agility, smart thinking and a fun place to work. For the past 54 years, EF has grown to include a range of programs that give students of all ages the freedom and confidence to explore the world through language, travel and education. EF Education has implemented the Hello Zero initiative, a commitment to voluntarily offset all our global carbon emissions. Our goal is to be carbon-negative every year starting in 2021, and to become historically carbon-neutral by eliminating all of the carbon we have emitted, either directly or indirectly in association with our programs, since EF was founded in 1965.
