By volunteering with a nonprofit, teachers will gain practical experience from overseeing a community project which will come in use when entering the workforce
Furthermore, by designing and implementing a curriculum from scratch, teachers will not only be able to gain a deeper understanding of their language, but will also attain the organizational and managerial skills necessary for the real world
Teachers will be expected to commit five hours a week in May (before the program start) to develop the curriculum
During the session, teachers will be expected to teach two 45-minute classes per week, per group they choose to work with (if confused, please refer to the class options in the written application)
Teachers will be expected to attend weekly team meetings
Sessions will take place over the course of June, July, and August of 2021. Teachers will select the months they are able to teach in the written application.
The written application is due by April 1, 2021.
