Colin P Program Manager
Reach the World transforms the energy of study abroad travelers into a mentoring and teaching resource for youth. Each semester, we select and train a corps of study abroad travelers to engage with students and write structured, media-rich content for our website. We then match these study abroad travelers with classrooms in public schools and after school programs. In addition to writing for a classroom audience, our travelers videoconference with their classroom match to connect in real time.
Go to www.about.reachtheworld.org to learn more about us, and www.reachtheworld.org/journeys to check out what our study abroad travelers are writing. Our travelers are writing from places across the globe!
Every semester, we also hire and train a team of interns to assist in our collaborating classrooms in New York City. Our interns (Global Learning Leaders) support program implementation by assisting one of our partner educators in the classroom on a once-a-week basis. Over the course of the semester, leaders gain experience in lesson planning and classroom management
Our Global Learning Leaders are undergraduate and graduate school students who are interested in gaining classroom experience. Their role is to facilitate connection between the classroom and the study abroad traveler. Global Learning Leaders receive training on teaching, classroom management, and using our global education platform. GLLs will:
- Assist in a (K-12) school day or after school classroom
- Facilitate and manage all communication between the classroom and their study abroad traveler, including videoconferences
- Actively engage with students in the classroom
- Report directly to a program manager on a weekly basis for feedback and support
- Attend professional development meetings throughout the semester
- Set and achieve programmatic and personal goals
-Interns will receive a stipend upon completion of each 2-3 month session they lead as a GLL
-We have worked with NYC school including LIU Brooklyn and St. John's University to provide students with academic credit for their work with Reach the World.
-While interns are required to be present for weekly Reach the World lessons at their assigned partner school, all lesson planning work may be completed remotely.
