Every one of us wants to make a change in the society we live in. And I believe that, teacher is “the” person in children’s lives to make a difference. One day during my lazy browsing, I came across this beautiful website :
http://www.teachforindia.org/According to the website, who can apply?
A strong belief in and commitment to Teach For India’s mission and vision
– Fit with Teach For India’s core values
– Leadership experience and potential
– The ability to work effectively in challenging environments
– Critical thinking ability
– Strong English communication skills
What this means is, you need not have any teaching background. But, a strong passion towards teaching and serving the society.
You will be alloted a school and will be required to make a 2 year commitment. During this period, a stipend of Rs. 16,000 will be paid. This is a win-win : Free leadership course for the teachers and good learning environment for students. 🙂
Currently, the teaching is going on in cities of Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune and Delhi.
So, what do you do next?
2o13 Admissions are closed. Express your interest for 2014 here. The process will begin in July 2013.
If you do not have 2 years of free time ,but would still like to do something, express your interest to volunteer here.
At the moment, I would like to think that volunteering is the best way to start off and see how things go.
Have a good day and keep rocking!!
