Teach English in rural primary schools in coastal Mexico!
The ?! Careyes Foundation is seeking motivated volunteers to serve as English teachers in rural primary schools. We are partnered with ten schools in the beautiful Costalegre region, located along the Pacific coast of Jalisco, Mexico. Our English teaching program reaches over 1,000 2nd-6th grade students, using an new methodology and curriculum specifically developed to meet the needs of the rural population that we serve.
If you are interested in teaching and learning from children, helping develop an innovative learning process, and making an impact in rural communities, we want to hear from you! Depending on individual interest, there may be additional opportunities for volunteers to participate in our other existing programs, help develop and coordinate new programs, and/or support various administrative aspects of our non-profit organization.
Please visit www.careyesfoundation.org for information about all of our programs and the communities we serve. The ?! Careyes Foundation is a USA 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Volunteers will receive airfare (two round-trip flights for US citizens), transportation, housing, and a stipend to cover basic expenses. Volunteers will be provided with training in an innovative teaching method, as well as opportunities to build community relationships, create and coordinate programs, and participate in the administration of the organization.
Volunteers must be fluent in English and moderate in Spanish. Previous experience teaching and/or working with children is preferred.
We hope to find volunteers who can commit to teach for the full school year, from August 2016 through June 2017, although we may have availability from August-December 2016 or January-June 2017.
How to apply
?! Careyes Foundation
The Careyes Foundation is a non-profit organization that serves the communities of the beautiful Costalegre region along the Pacific coast of Jalisco, Mexico. We believe that for a community to thrive, it must be healthy in every way: the natural environment must be preserved and agriculture enhanced, its citizens must have work and education should be available to all, support should be given to culture and arts. If any of these elements fails, the entire structure is weakened. The Careyes Foundation is a unique model that integrates every aspect of the community, occurring in one of the planet's more pristine and beautiful places, to create a comprehensive solution that, we hope, can be applied around the world.
