Refugee Youth Educator

Spanning Lebanon, Syria, Israel, Palestine, and Jordan, the Levant is the land east of the Mediterranean where the sun rises. It's a place of staggering contrasts, and despite the persistent despair and peril her people face, there lies immense beauty and hope.

Our teams in the Levant work in Jordan and Lebanon. Unique to our usual focus on higher education, our teachers serve alongside Jordanian and Lebanese educators offering assistance to the 5 million Syrian refugees in the region. In addition to teaching conversational English, our teams are committed to investing in the lives of their students and communities outside the classroom, by living life alongside them. Through the privacy of one-on-one conversations held in homes and offices, out to eat, or on community excursions, real life and hope are shared with seeking students. Genuine friendships with our students become the basis for incredible conversations and life-change.

We need fun, flexible, dedicated people to join our vibrant teams in the Levant! We teach at a professional level, but prior teaching experience is not required. We provide cultural and TESOL training prior to your departure. We value sending people who have a passion for developing friendships and pursuing lasting relationships. Join our teams on the ground who are making a huge impact!
