The English Program - Community Intern plays a main role for En Vía's English Program. You’ll be going into the communities where we teach to supervise our ongoing English classes and support our volunteer teachers & their students. Furthermore you will assist in new volunteer trainings, debrief & exit meetings and serve as an English teacher substitute when needed. 

You’ll also help plan interactive lessons for kids and adults and evaluate the progress of each student. While volunteering with En Vía, you will get a deeper understanding for the daily life in the communities around Oaxaca and help to create new opportunities for a better future amongst your English students. 

This is a great position for someone with experience in teaching and working with children to enhance their management skills and/or gain international work experience.

● Coordinate classroom management on site.

● Teach classes as an English substitute teacher when needed.

● Build relationships with students, teachers, community and staff members.

Additional Responsibilities

● Fluent in English (oral and written). 

● Intermediate (advanced) level of Spanish.

● Weekly commitment: Monday to Thursday 1:30 pm - 7:00 pm.

Cost/Compensation 

● There is no cost to do an internship with our organization. However, interns are asked to pay for their own transportation to and from the communities, which is usually 40 pesos round-trip.

● This is an unpaid intern position. At this time, En Vía doesn’t provide assistance with housing or living costs, but we can give you recommendations of housing in or around the city.
