BECA is hiring 39 volunteers for a full-year contract beginning July 9th, 2018. Volunteers are accepted on a rolling basis so APPLY TODAY! You can also follow us on facebook or sign up for our newsletter to stay informed of recruitment opportunities. The one-year teaching commitment begins in July 2018 and ends in June 2019.
Teachers have a holiday break from approximately Dec. All selected volunteer teachers are assigned to an elementary classroom, a middle school classroom, or a resource teacher role. BECA interviewers will explain the differences between the three positions in detail, but for now we have listed the general responsibilities required of all teachers. While BECA asks for a one year commitment from our volunteer teachers, we actively encourage teachers to consider returning following their initial year with us. BECA recognizes that there are huge benefits to teachers returning for a second year.
Returning teachers are much more effective in the classroom thanks to their previous year’s experience. A Program Administrator is an in-country team member who is crucial to the operation of BECA’s partnership model. At each of BECA’s three school sites, one Program Administrator is hired to play a key leadership role within the school both on behalf of the volunteer team and on behalf of the Honduran School Director and our Partner. The PM will move between BECA’s three bilingual school locations. Additionally, this person is responsible for leading the team of Cofradía-based volunteers in cultural and community engagement. We seek approximately 10 Summer Camp Counselors for our annual Summer Camp for children in grades 1-5.
The camp is structured to provide our students with opportunities to remain immersed in the English language over the summer through fun games and activities – making the transition back to classes in August less difficult and preventing summer learning loss. Because the Summer Camp is a supplemental program, BECA recoups the program’s expenses through donations paid by Summer Camp Counselors who wish to participate. A reduced contribution may be available for college students with demonstrated need. For current college students, please note that volunteers in the past have successfully applied for on-campus grant monies to cover this expense and travel.
