English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Teaching Fellowship - Fall 2016

Tomorrow's Youth Organization is an American non-profit organization that works in disadvantaged areas of the Middle East, enabling children, youth, and parents to realize their potential as healthy, active, and responsible family and community members. EFL Teaching Fellows will be based at our flagship center in Nablus (Palestine) for our Fall 2016 session (September- December 2016*).
We are recruiting highly qualified and motivated individuals with a strong background in teaching, as well as strong experience or interest in teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and/or Teaching English as a Secondary Language (ESL).
TYO Teaching Fellows will work full-time in cooperation with TYO local and international staff. Teaching Fellows will teach highly intensive EFL classes to university students and graduates in the greater Nablus community from refugee camps and other marginalized areas of the Northern West Bank. Each Teaching Fellow will work off of an intensive EFL curriculum to develop and implement their own creative lesson plans throughout the session as well as informally acting as a liaison between TYO and the local community.
Depending on class schedules, Teaching Fellows may also have the opportunity to teach workshops and classes on professional competency for university students, sports, drama and art for youth and children, and weekend recreational activities. Also, there may be opportunities for fellows to collaborate with other organizations in Nablus as well as on grant-funded projects, at the TYO Center, in the areas of photography/painting and micro-finance projects for women.
TYO Teaching Fellows will have the chance to grow and develop professionally throughout the program. Teaching Fellows receive the on-the-ground experience of working in Palestine, teaching an intensive foreign language curriculum, as well as the chance to work in the non-profit sector with an American NGO. Additionally, fellows will develop Monitoring and Evaluation plans for their classes and play an important role in contributing to curriculum revision and development throughout their teaching experience. Additional responsibilities will include report and blog writing.
If selected to participate in the English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Teaching Fellowship, TYO will provide fellows with the following:
  • Roundtrip airfare from city of residence
  • Room and board at TYO’s expansive facility
  • Multiple educational trips throughout the West Bank
  • Arabic lessons with a private tutor
    There is no salary for the internship. Applicants are encouraged to pursue funding options through their universities or communities.

• Initiative, flexibility, and perseverance given the challenging, dynamic nature of TYO's work
