Conexión Community Center in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico needs an ESL teacher who can develop an English program. Many people in Vallarta already speak English. This teacher will focus on offering classes specific to the hospitality industry (i.e.: ‘hotel’ or ‘restaurant’). Other ideas for teaching could include English conversational coffee nights, directing an English-language choir, English Bible studies, or leading special English events or classes at local hotels and communities as a representative of Conexión. Specific age-appropriate English classes and activities for the many local university students would also be a great way to serve the community. The program may grow to include children’s classes, but for now, the target audience is age 15 years and older. The duration of this role ranges from 3 – 6 months.
- High School diploma
- Experience as an ESL teacher or teacher’s aide for older youth or adults
- Ability to develop a new program, be a self-starter, independent, teachable, work well on a team, and have a strong sense of personal identity
- Ability to grow spiritually without a lot of local fellowship
