Environmental Conservation Instructor

Project description

The Forestry Training Institute (FTI) in Liberia has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer to serve as an Environmental Conservation Instructor. FTI's mandate is to mandate to provide a trained workforce for middle level positions in Liberia’s re-constituted forestry sector, and FTI has identified a need for support for their courses on biodiversity conversation, climate change, and wildlife management.

The PCRV will be a member of FTI’s Academic Team and will co-plan and co-teach lectures with the FTI instructors. The PCRV will also work in consultation with FTI administration on projects which enhance training at the institution. The goal of this assignment is to support FTI instructors in FTI's priority areas and assist instructors to improve their teaching.

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