Hey college grads – have you ever thought about teaching English in another country? Now Masa Israel Journey and the Israeli Ministry of Education are joining forces to create the Israel Teaching Fellows program.
Outstanding college graduates aged 21-30 are invited to apply to teach English in underprivileged communities across Israel, during a 10-month service program starting in August, 2011. Like many developed countries, Israel struggles with educational inequity and underperformance of some students, especially in low-income and under-served communities. Volunteering with the Israel Teaching Fellows program will allow participants to play an important roll in students lives and share with them valuable English language skills to help them on their academic and professional journeys.
All participants will undergo a month-long training period to equip them with skills and confidence to bring to their classrooms and students. They will also have access to ongoing pedagogical training throughout the ten months to make sure they can make the largest impact possible during their fellowship. Meanwhile, participants will also have the opportunity to design a second volunteer project in the communities where they work, and advance their own familiarity with Hebrew through Ulpan instruction and trips throughout Israel during the fellowship.
