Assistant Teacher Positions Available with Holy Child Volunteers!


Holy Child Volunteers (www.holychildvolunteers.org) is looking for graduating seniors with strong Spanish language skills who might want to spend the next year volunteering as assistant teachers in their Montessori-based school in the Dominican Republic. Teaching experience is not necessary to be a Holy Child Volunteer - a desire to help the underserved, strong Spanish language skills, and a love for children are, however! 

Holy Child Volunteers offers volunteers a small stipend, room/board, orientation, and health insurance, among other things. 

Holy Child Volunteers an 11-month program - one of the shorter "long-term" international volunteer opportunities available, so they are a good program for those who are not sure they are ready or able to commit to the 2+ years that most international volunteer programs require. Holy Child Volunteers do have the opportunity to renew for additional years, however, once their initial service year is over. This year's volunteer year runs from July 31, 2015-June 30, 2016. 

A video, more information, and the application can be found on their website: holychildvolunteers.org. They accept applicants on a rolling admissions basis.
