Village Fellow (various positions available)

The Village Fellows program of the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village (ASYV) places 8-10 international Fellows at their site in Rwanda.

Fellows spend 12 months living and working in the Village; they are placed into professional roles and work together with Rwandan staff to support existing programs and help develop new systems and programs. They become an integral part of the staff team that enables the Village to fulfill its goal of providing a nurturing home and exemplary formal and informal education to our kids.

In addition to their professional role, each Fellow joins a family and serves as a mentor (“cousin”) to 16 teenage students who are in their first year of living in the Village. Fellows work hand-in-hand with Family Mothers and Counselors to create a loving and supportive family and home environment for our teens.

Additionally, Fellows tutor English and teach many of the Enrichment Programs offered in the Village after school and during the evenings.

Location: Rwanda

Application deadline: 14 August 2015
