  • Lebanon: Volunteer English Teachers Needed for Refugees in Lebanon


    Organization: Soutien Belge Overseas
    Country: Lebanon
    Closing date: 31 Dec 2017

    Period:

    2-4 months

    Starting date:

    1st January 2018 (applications are open throughout 2018 with programmes starting every two months)

    Programme Description:

    SB Overseas is looking for enthusiastic and capable volunteers to teach English and help run two of our schools and women’s training centres in Lebanon, both of which were established to serve refugees: one in Saida (in the south-west), and another in Beirut (in the west).

    The refugee children in our schools need this remedial education in order to have a chance of passing entry tests for the Lebanese public education system. Without access to public education, they risk missing out on an education permanently, and becoming a “lost generation”.

    The women who go to our centres, meanwhile, find themselves in particularly vulnerable situations inside the refugee camps, and need the training and support provided by our teams to empower them with the promise of a brighter future.

    Role/Duties:

    The core activity in this role is providing English lessons to our women and children. Other duties will include running weekend activities for the children, day care, and potentially some other tasks, such as administrative work.

    Skills/Experience:

    No specific skills or experience are considered essential, although some experience teaching or working with children in some other capacity is desirable.

    The single most important quality we look for in candidates is that they are motivated to help others. As with all teaching roles, the ideal candidate will be adaptable and have a positive and resilient attitude, capable of bringing energy, patience, persistence and creativity to the role.

    NOTE: We also run a programme that allows volunteers to teach on a part-time basis while partaking in intensive Arabic lessons for between two and eight months. See our website for more details.


    How to apply:
