Summer Job Opportunity for Arabic-Speaking Youth Educators

Now hiring Arabic-speaking group leaders to work with Iraqi youth!

IYLEP Arabic, a program of World Learning, is currently hiring experienced educators to lead a group of high school students on their U.S. exchange in summer 2019, conducted entirely in Arabic!

The Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) for high school and undergraduate students is a program sponsored and funded by the US Embassy, Baghdad and implemented by World Learning. IYLEP has provided invaluable leadership and educational opportunities for over 2,700 students since its inception in 2007. As an investment in global understanding and peace, these fully funded programs have created a cadre of future leaders of Iraq: young people who will inspire and impact others. In hopes of reaching even more Iraqi youth – many of whom may not have the language skills to join IYLEP high school in English – World Learning organizes a cohort group conducted entirely in Arabic. IYLEP Arabic launched in 2017 and has been successfully implemented for two years. IYLEP Arabic aims to enhance leadership and civic engagement skills among participants, foster respect for diversity, build bridges of understanding between the peoples of Iraq and the United States as well as develop their English language skills.

Benefits of leading with IYLEP Arabic:

  • Exposure to experiential learning techniques
  • Connecting to emerging young leaders from Iraq (and around the world)
  • Building a network of like-minded colleagues
  • Professional development at our weeklong Staff Training
  • A rewarding professional experience that will forever impact the lives of global youth!
