You will spend your afternoons working 1:1 or in a small group with some of our kids from Joy or Courage. Mornings with be spent helping with lesson plans, working with some of our other in-home schools, and helping us train our local teachers to make sure they have the tools to continue to work with the kids throughout the school year. This opportunity is ideal for teachers and college students majoring in education but we welcome people with different backgrounds to apply! Cost is $600 plus airfare and passport/visa costs.
