Opportunity Details


Our foundation facilitates cross-cultural service learning, volunteer vacations, community initiatives, and scholarships in highland Ecuador and Mali's Dogon Country.


We are seeking an experienced educator to bring their creativity in lesson planning and teaching to a three week summer program offered to elementary school students. The students will also be led on 3 one-day field trips and the ideal candidate will enjoy working with students both in and out of the classroom. The educator will get to design their curriculum and are asked to be inspired to teach what they are passionate about.


Great for people with teaching skills! Interested but not the right length? Like our organization and have an idea how your skills can help us? Message us at: match@movingworlds.org



This project will be a success based on the amount of fun our students have as well as how inspired they are for the upcoming school year after they leave this course.
