DescriptionWith increasing international opportunities in areas like business and higher education, Palestinians are eager to develop their English language skills. They hear English often on TV and in music but they hardly ever have the chance to improve their English with native speakers. 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 the history, culture and conflict in Palestine. We encourage our volunteers to experience all dimensions of Palestinian and Hebron culture during their time with La Casa. There will be plenty of time during your program to experience Palestine and visit nearby cities such as Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Jericho and Ramallah.
This program is open 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. We do not require that you have any previous teaching experience and or that you have taken English teaching courses. 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. We also welcome groups to come work with us. 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. The duration of our program is flexible. We have international volunteers/interns coming throughout the year for various lengths of stay. Participants can stay up to 6 months on a tourist visa. If you would like to stay longer, we can assist you in your effort to extend your visa.
