Description

Liberty’s Promise Facilitator Description:


  • Are you interested in leading groups or working with teenagers and young adults?
  • Do you want to help make a difference in the life of a young person?
  • Would you like to teach immigrant youth about American civic life?




Overview:

​If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this might be the opportunity for you! Liberty's Promise seeks  energetic​ facilitators for its​ ​after-school program​s​ of civic engagement. Liberty's Promise supports young immigrants in need while encouraging them to be active and conscientious American citizens. The program serves immigrant youth, ages 15-21, and features ​more than 30 hours of programming that teaches participants about their community, civics, college, and careers. Unlike typical classroom civics courses, immigrant youth gain first-hand knowledge of local government and the benefits of civic participation through field trips to local community resources and meetings with guest speakers.



Implementation/ Pay:

Our fall ​programs will take place twice a week for ten weeks from​ October ​to​ December (for 90 minutes per session) and include one or two Saturday field trips. Facilitators are expected to develop 30-minute activities that target each session's theme/main activity with the support and guidance of Liberty's Promise staff. Facilitators are also required to submit a short activity report at the end of each session and to complete a final report at the end of the semester. Facilitators are paid $2,000 for their services ($1,000 at beginning of program and $1,000 upon receipt of final report).



Qualifications:

Experience teaching or leading groups is ideal;

Energetic, engaging, and enthusiastic;

Good organizational and communication skills;

Dependable and self-motivated;

Knowledge of government/civics and experience working with multicultural youth are preferred;

Commitment to issues of immigration, community involvement, and national strength through diversity;

​Knowledge of Spanish​, French, or Amharic​ is ​​a plus.
