English Teaching (ESL) Fellow
Village Fellows Program Overview:
The Village Fellows program of the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village places 8 international volunteers (“Fellows”) at our site in Rwanda. Fellows spend 12 months living and working in the Village; they are placed into professional roles and work together with Rwandan staff to support existing programs and help develop new systems and programs. They become an integral part of the staff team that enables the Village to fulfill its goal of providing a nurturing home and exemplary formal and informal education to our kids.
In addition to their professional role, most Fellows join a family and serve as a mentor to 16-24 teenage students who are in their first year of living in the Village. Fellows (in this role called “Cousins") work hand-in-hand with Family Mothers and counselors to create a loving and supportive family and home environment for our teens.
Additionally, Fellows lead and support many of the Enrichment Programs and special events offered in the Village after school and during the evenings.
English Teaching (ESL) Fellow – The English Teaching (ESL) Fellow will support the Village’s English Language Learners (ELL), providing English Enrichment at the Liquidnet Family High School (LFHS) and support for teachers to expand English language literacy (speaking, listening, reading, and writing). Duties will include teaching daily English instruction for “Enrichment Year” (entering 9th graders), designing assessments to track progress, and collaborating with LFHS staff to integrate a comprehensive English curriculum. The Fellow will manage the two Village libraries and work to create an overall culture of exciting, engaging, English enrichment. This Fellow is also encouraged to serve as the adviser for the Student Government. Experience teaching English language learners is preferred. Candidates with TESOL certification, second language learners and/or certificated (licensed) teachers are highly encouraged to apply.
