DescriptionFor those who are interested in learning Arabic, teaching English, teaching French or helping with the development of our organization, we invite you to apply.
La Casa is a language based learning center located on the main street of the city of Hebron. We focus on teaching languages, including English, Arabic, French, Hebrew and German. Additionally, we offer academic enhancement workshops for students.
We primarily work with university-aged Palestinian youth in Hebron and surrounding refugee camps, offering them an opportunity to improve their lives through education. We aim to achieve a diverse cultural exchange and social dialogue through our international programs by hosting people from around the world. The diverse perspectives enrich the activities and programs at La Casa. You will see true Palestinian life and be introduced to new points of view. Our programs promise a positive and enriching experience.
Palestine is beautiful and our city, Hebron, is very close to Bethlehem and Jerusalem via public transportation. Access to all nearby major cities is easy from Hebron. There are inexpensive shared taxis available for weekend trips to Jericho, Ramallah and Nablus. Hebron, the economic capital of Palestine is split between the old city and new city. La Casa is located on the new city and approximately a 15 minute walk from the old city.
Please be advised that there is a fee involved for the volunteer program if housing is required, $250.00 per month. This fee does not include Arabic courses.
Housing will be close to La Casa, either with a host family or in a guesthouse. We try to accommodate all housing needs. If you decide to arrange your own housing, there is no fee associated with the volunteer teaching program. All students and volunteers are responsible for the remainder of outside of program costs such as airfare, food and transportation. Fortunately, Hebron is a very affordable city to live in.
ResponsibilitiesAs to the work schedule for volunteers; volunteers are asked to work approximately 25 hours/5 days per week. We prefer that you come for a minimum of one month, but the date of your arrival/departure is flexible.
RequirementsThis experience is available to anyone with an interest in helping others learn the English language, teaching others about your own culture and assisting in youth development programs. 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.
