TEACH ENGLISH OR MUSIC EDUCATION TO PALESTINE REFUGEE YOUTH IN LEBANON THIS SUMMER!
Deadline: February 12, 2020
PROJECT DATES for SHINE & MUSIC
PROJECT SHINE - SUMMER HELP IN ENGLISH
Project SHINE provides an intensive summer English language project to prepare students for the Brevet examination, strengthen their English proficiency, and provide a space for intellectual and recreational activities to change the routine of camp life during the summer. LEAP is recruiting volunteers to provide English language instruction and other recreational enrichment activities (such as theater, dance, film, yoga, and creative writing), while living and working in the refugee camps of Lebanon. To apply, click here.
Project MUSIC aims to equip refugee youth with musical instruments and provide music education in the camps, thereby stimulating creative and therapeutic expression to further nurture their psychosocial support and improve their overall well-being. Music is a formidable tool for empowerment. Access to music education in the camps is limited, and LEAP seeks to change this. LEAP volunteers will work to support young musicians in the camp to advance their skills and confidence.
LEAP is recruiting volunteers to teach different kinds of music education, based on the talents each candidate brings. These have included: theory, strings, winds, oud, and vocal. To apply, click here.
LEAP volunteers learn about the Palestine refugee reality, particularly in Lebanon, where the situation for Palestinian refugees is dire, and even more so in recent years after the Syria crisis. Volunteers and students share a mutual learning experience. Upon return to their home communities, volunteers are expected to raise awareness about the plight of Palestine refugees and amplify the voices of refugees through report-backs and information sessions.
LEAP seeks dynamic, compassionate, and motivated volunteers who enjoy working with young adults, value the right to quality education, believe in refugee rights, have a passion for social justice, maintain respect and diplomacy in their interactions with people of different backgrounds, and who are capable of working under challenging circumstances.
Volunteers must demonstrate experience in one or more of the following: work or knowledge of the MENA region, particularly Lebanon; Arabic colloquial skills; teaching English as a new language; work in tutoring, after-school programs, or camps; advocacy and organizing experience; management and coordination; working or living abroad; and/or psychosocial support or social work.
