DREAM is seeking certified teachers to work in our DREAM Summer School and Camp, a five week program for at-risk children, aged 9-17. The summer camp offers additional educational support through individualized tutoring, experiential learning and specialized educational programs to students who are at risk of dropping out. Teachers will work in an area that best matches their individual talents (including English, math, ESL, heath, reading and writing courses) to guide the children in educational exploration. They will also work directly with Dominican teachers so that they may demonstrate hands-on learning to allow for replication and sustainability.
Teachers are asked to serve as mentors and show the children what it means to be a world citizen. Volunteers will introduce children to a cross-cultural curriculum, which explores topics as serious as racism toward Haitians, economic disparity, globalization and peaceful cooperation.
