Carpe Diem Education
About the organization
Carpe Diem Education offers expertly designed gap year programs to 5 continents and 18 countries around the world. We provide students an opportunity to explore some of the most fascinating regions on Earth, each offering a unique culturally immersive experience. Through educational curriculum designed to challenge perspectives, enrich cross-cultural understanding, and inspire personal growth, students reignite their passion for learning.
Overseas Educators are mentors, role models, and leaders. They effectively provide support for students, explore and expand comfort zones, manage risk, advocate for optimal student health, and support logistics from transportation to budgets. They are ambassadors to local contacts and represent our community internationally. They bring heart, soul, and grit to a job that is challenging, rewarding, and multi-faceted.
We look for program leaders who are committed to facilitating growth in their students, their co-workers, and in themselves. For 3 months, OEs assist students in navigating cultures and countries, learning how to be responsible travelers, and in developing effective interpersonal and communication skills.
If you feel you have the right balance of leadership and mentorship, travel sensitivity, cultural understanding, community living skills, risk management experience, and a passion for working with students ages 17-22, we encourage you to apply for an Overseas Educator position.
