English Co-teacher and Curriculum Development Specialist

Project Description

Caritas Georgia has requested the support of Peace Corps Response Volunteers (PCRVs) to serve as English Co-teacher and Curriculum Development Specialists. One of the core projects implemented by Caritas Georgia, a Youth Day Care Center called “Sunflowers”, provides 6-18 year-old children with the opportunity to spend time before/after school hours in a safe and friendly environment. Caritas Georgia identified three areas where Day Care Centers would benefit from additional support for them to achieve improved quality of instruction and teacher capacity: teacher professional development; curriculum development; and co-teaching to students.

The PCRVs will support each Day Care Center by co-developing curriculum and piloting of the existing English language education program, including co-creating new learning resources that align with student needs and the new curriculum. The PCRVs will also support English teachers in improving their teaching skills and English proficiency through one-on-one feedback, coaching, observations, workshops, and trainings. The overall goal of the assignment is to strengthen the capacity of Caritas Georgia's Day Care Centers to support equitable educational opportunities for all children.

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Georgia together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
