Teaching Abroad Opportunity - Abaarso School (Somaliland)

Abaarso Network

About the organization

Abaarso was featured on 60 Minutes and in the New York Times when our students became the first from their country in more than 30 years to matriculate to US universities including Harvard, Yale, MIT, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, and Penn. Our students have thrived in our boarding school environment where teachers provide extracurricular activities like clubs, sports, and advising throughout the week while providing an English-immersion experience. While we are an American-accredited school, many team members have been extremely successful despite arriving with no formal teaching experience.
Abaarso teachers have enjoyed tremendous exit opportunities, including graduate programs at Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Cambridge, and other top universities, as well as careers in school leadership, the Foreign Service, data science, and more.
We are seeking energetic, resilient people who want to help underprivileged students earn life changing opportunities.
