English as A Second Language Teacher  – Project Perpetual Help Haiti

Help significantly those affected by the earthquake in Haiti. Contribute to the development and implementation of Project Perpetual Help Haiti. Become a member of the newly established CTF-SOS DRS community in Port au Prince where we live, work and worship together.

CTF-SOS DRS is an international, Catholic, non-profit disaster relief organization based in both Rome, Italy and Milwaukee, Wisconsin (http://sosdrs.org/).

CTF-SOS DRS is presently planning and implementing several relief programs in Haiti. The organization seeks a person who is people-oriented, hardworking, trustworthy, and a team player who will serve as an English as a Second Language Teacher. We are currently seeking teachers for the 2 month period from August 15-October 15, 2011. Candidates may choose to stay for more than 2 months, but that is the minimum stay.

This person will work under the supervision of the ESL Program Coordinator. As such he or she will help implement the program through teaching English to Haitians and other foreigners. Further program details will be discussed in the initial interview.

Required is an ability to use and teach the English language well (written and verbal); creativity, good people skills, a minimum stay in Haiti of 2 months.

The ESL teacher must show a willingness to live the mission of CTF-SOS DRS and participate as a community member.

Very helpful would be a knowledge of French and/or the Kreyol language; previous missionary experience.

An initial interview will be conducted by telephone or in person if possible. Once accepted, the applicant will undergo a brief period of orientation/preparation and then fly to Port au Prince, Haiti to reside in the community. Expenses related to travel, room and board will be covered by CTF-SOS DRS. Personal expenses will be the responsibility of the volunteer.  If there are any questions about the position, please e-mail Fr. Scott at fatherscott@ctfmercy.org or call him on SKYPE – fr.scottbinet.
