Many teaching positions in Senegal and Africa are done on a volunteer or missionary basis. American TESOL supports groups and individuals with their goals to teach English in Senegal. Becoming familiar with the culture of Africa is a plus.
Independent from France in 1960, Senegal was ruled by the Socialist Party for forty years until current President Abdoulaye WADE was elected in 2000. Senegal joined with The Gambia to form the nominal confederation of Senegambia in 1982, but the envisaged integration of the two countries was never carried out, and the union was dissolved in 1989. A southern separatist group sporadically has clashed with government forces since 1982, but Senegal remains one of the most stable democracies in Africa. Senegal has a long history of participating in international peacekeeping.
