Leading a high school program generally involves a three-to-six-week commitment (late June through mid-August) as well as attending a ten-day orientation prior to departure in mid-to-late June. These are co-leadership positions: two leaders, typically one man and one woman, lead a group of up to eighteen high school students.
Gap Year/College program leadership positions involve coordinating and supporting interns who live either singly or in pairs in villages as they teach at local primary and secondary schools. The leader(s) is also responsible for organizing the group’s in-country orientation and managing the de-briefing process prior to their return. Preference is given to applicants who are able to lead two or more programs sequentially.
The goals of our programs require that leaders have a deep commitment to fostering the growth of themselves and group participants. The intention of the programs is to place students in an environment radically different from their own where they can reflect on their own life and culture. Leaders must facilitate this process in a fun and creative way in addition to meeting the logistical demands of managing a group in a developing country.
