Description

English Teaching and Critical Skills Facilitators will be part of the Teaching English Leadership & Life Skills (TELLS) program. These Volunteers will work in public elementary and secondary schools with Panamanian English teachers to develop their English language skills and teaching methodologies through co-planning and co-teaching, observation and feedback, materials development, and teacher trainings. Volunteers will prepare students and community members for better communication skills and offer extra-curricular activities to learn and practice English through camps, clubs, or community English classes.

In addition, Volunteers can work with school counselors and at the community level (potentially with Host Country Agencies or outside organizations) to facilitate leadership and life skills through camps, sports groups, clubs and courses. Volunteers may also support initiatives at nearby universities. Volunteers will spend 2/3 of their time on school-based activities and 1/3 of their time on community-based activities. Volunteers will be seen as a role model to youth and teachers. Experience as a mentor is a plus.
