About our organization:
We believe in women empowering themselves through language and technology. Based at the Hopes-Sitti Women’s Center and with the support of Hopes for Women in Education, a nonprofit registered in Canada in Jordan, we coordinate and support online language-exchange sessions between Palestinian refugee women learning English and young women learning Arabic in universities across the U.S., Canada, & Europe. We also provide weekly English classes for women in the camp, taught by expatriate volunteers, and will soon be launching a Pathways to Employment Initiative as well as professional development courses.
About the position:
Banaat Connect is seeking a student intern (either current students or recent graduates) for a position at our Center in Jordan or remotely. The intern will play a critical role in BC’s curriculum development for our English classes, Banaat Connect English and Arabic program materials, and other professional development courses. Commitment of 10-15/week.
This includes researching best practices and materials for each of the respective curriculums, analyzing the effectiveness of the current program materials, and revising them as needed. The intern will also research and meet with other similar organizations to see how we can collaborate in terms of the materials we each use. If in-country, the intern will have the opportunity to see BC’s work on the ground by assisting at events at our Center.
The application deadline is September 22nd at 5pm Eastern Time. Please send a cover letter, resume, and 2 references to [email protected] with the subject line “Fall 2017 _______ Internship."
