Description

With increasing international work opportunities in areas like business and higher education, Palestinians are eager to develop their English language skills. They hear it often on TV and in music but they hardly ever have the chance to practice speaking English.  As a volunteer teacher, you will have a positive impact on the students you teach and the city of Hebron.

Volunteer teaching will provide you with the opportunity to learn about Palestine. We encourage our volunteers to experience all dimensions of Palestinian and Hebron culture during their time with La Casa.  Even though we work hard at La Casa, there is plenty of time in the evenings and weekends to experience Palestine and visit nearby cities such as Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Jericho and Ramallah.

Our youth are very informed, politically active and well versed in using social media. They will never pass up a chance to talk to you and regularly invite foreigners to their homes for a meal with their families.

All participants are provided housing with a local Palestinian host family or in an apartment shared with other volunteers, depending on availability.

La Casa is registered with the Companies Controller at the Palestinian Ministry of Ministry of National Economy. It is registered as a cultural center in the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, and also as a member of Hebron Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Responsibilities



This experience is available to anyone with an interest in helping others to learn the English language, teaching others about your own culture and assisting in youth development programs.

The duration of our program is flexible. We have international volunteers/interns coming throughout the year for various lengths of stay. We do prefer that interns/volunteers stay for a minimum of 4 weeks. However, if this is not a possibility, it is not mandatory.

It is expected that you work 25/30 hours per week. Your work will consist of the following tasks:
-Teaching English conversation courses
-Planning educational activities
-Organizing educational workshops on varied topics (E.g. how to write a CV, cover letter or formal e-mail)
- Writing class curriculum
- Assisting La Casa Center in strengthening community relations and relations with local/international organizations

Requirements

We do not require that you have any previous teaching experience and or that you take a TEFL course. Whether you want to volunteer during your winter/spring break, gap year, extended vacation or as a volunteer vacation, you will have an important role to play and your efforts will be greatly appreciated. If you are a student in a university, we will gladly assist you in acquiring internship (academic) credits for your work with us, if it is possible.
