IMMEDIATE OPENING: Elementary School Teacher (room & board included)
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Bilingual Education for Central America (BECA)
Full time (30+ hrs/wk)
Long-Term (6 months-1 year)
Bilingual Education for Central America (“BECA”) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded in 2002. What began as an idea born in the homes of several Honduran families has since grown into a community-supported bilingual school model run in partnership with low-income communities in Honduras. BECA’s mission is to provide quality, affordable bilingual education to the educationally disenfranchised, while at the same time fostering meaningful cultural exchange between our volunteers and the communities in which they are immersed.
As BECA has grown over the past decade, we have distinguished ourselves from other education programs by the breadth and depth of our community engagement and volunteer training program. At each BECA school, local Honduran stakeholders maintain responsibility for effective school management while BECA recruits, trains, and provides support to English-speaking volunteers. Our provision of bilingual education to low-income students is a solutions-oriented response to multiple issues —economic development, jobs, drugs, violence—that impact both Central America and the United States.
Every year, BECA assembles a team of committed volunteers who want to dedicate themselves for a year of service as full-time classroom teachers engaging the difficult but rewarding work that we do in Honduras. BECA recruits, trains, and provides support to English-speaking volunteers with training and orientation, custom-made curricula and materials, year-long covered living expenses, and the opportunity for Spanish language and cultural immersion.
We are looking for a volunteer to fill an elementary school position teaching English Language Arts and Science at Santa Monica Bilingual School.
