Commit to work at least 4 full days (28 hours per week) or more at the CRP offices in Hashemi Shamali.

Background: The Collateral Repair Project (CRP) in Amman, Jordan has been providing assistance to refugee victims of violent conflict since 2006. Our programs seek to restore dignity among these displaced populations as well as ensure their basic needs are met. We do so through running an Emergency Assistance Program and a Family Resource and Community Center, which hosts a varied program of activities and learning opportunities to allow refugees to rebuild the community ties they have lost. CRP’s great strengths are the wealth of knowledge we have about the refugee community in Amman and the strong relationships we have developed with the individuals we serve. 


One of our most popular programs serving hundreds of community members each semester is our English classes. Available to teenage and adult refugees, our English courses run regularly throughout the year. English-language skills are invaluable to refugees. Many Syrian and Iraqi refugees in our community hope to resettle in English-speaking countries. Learning to speak English can also help these refugees find employment in the future and more easily integrate into their new communities. In order to help our students practice as much as possible and increase their proficiency, we are expanding our e-Learning program where students can practice their conversational skills over Skype with teachers we have individually selected from around the world.

The intern will assist and report to the TEFL Coordinator (Reyam Majeed).


The intern will be responsible for:

  • Teach two English classes  
  • Leading two courses, each of which meets for 1 hour twice per week
  • Assist with outreach and registration of students
  • Assist with administering course placement tests and attendance
  • Assist teachers with class management or printing materials 
  • Help coordinate E-Learning program, including outreach support, communicating with participants, facilitating sessions, and taking attendance


Competitive applicants will have the following qualifications: 

  • Strong organizational and time-management skills

  • Has experience working with refugees or other vulnerable communities - Accustomed to implementing trauma-sensitive programming
