Description

Pono, an independent, democratic, and outdoor center in Manhattan, is currently seeking interns in the following areas:

-Mathematics
-Cooking
-Foreign Languages (preferably, Arabic, Spanish, or Japanese)
-Music

Pono is set up with the purpose of immersing children in stimulating environments and harmoni-ous learning communities where each child’s interests and natural, innate desire to learn are cherished and nurtured as the children are guided to becoming balanced human beings.

Individuals who are balanced (personally stable, ethical and moral), energetic, child-at-heart (love to be around children and are very good listeners), interested in non-traditional educational philosophies, and who have a strong background in humane education are encouraged to apply.

General responsibilities include teaching children experientially in the out-of-doors, leading some lessons, and sharing daily responsibilities with staff members. Experience in teaching is helpful, but not required.

At Pono, interns are given an intensive workshop on democratic education before they start teaching and are required to participate in our Professional Development Program which focuses on democratic education, listening to children, communication, and prejudice reduction.
