Wanted: English teacher for young Triratna Buddhists in India
On Mon, 22 September, 2014 - 18:05
We are looking for someone to teach English as a Second Language (TESL) to young Indians from poor families, including a community of 10 young men, who are training in computer skills at the Aryaloka Computer Institute to prepare them for employment. This will help to lift them and their families out of poverty, and overcome the crippling disadvantages of caste. English is essential to success.
Who? We are looking for a GFR mitra or Order Member, male or female, but ideally a man willing to live in a community of young men. You would need to be experienced in teaching as well as qualified. Although there is great demand for English classes at the Institute, the timetable would be by arrangement with you. The teaching is deeply rewarding!
When? For at least 6 weeks between October and 2014 February 2015.
Where? Aryaloka Computer Institute, Nagpur, Central India.
Support? This is a voluntary post but your international return flight can be paid for, and your stay in the community would be rent free. Beyond that, the cost of living in India is very low, so your own money will go a lot further.
Teaching materials will be provided.
The project is managed by Young Indian Futures, under the umbrella of the Dhammaloka Trust.
