Are you passionate about girls health and education? Do you enjoy teaching youth? Serve as a teaching fellow with Girls Health Ed!
Girls Health Ed is a 501(c)(3) organization providing accurate and comprehensive health education programming to girls and young women ages 8-17. Girls Health Ed is a volunteer, community based organization. We exist to help girls make healthy, informed decisions about their lives by having teaching fellows from relevant fields teach seminars in local schools and community centers. Currently we operate in Washington, DC, New York City, Los Angeles, Nairobi, Kenya and Kogelo, Kenya.
A teaching fellow works in a classroom or community center in a Girls Health Ed location for each session. Teaching Fellows generally commit 1 hour a week during the course of the workshop series, which is typically 5 weeks. Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one school year.
The Director of Programs and Outreach will support the volunteer teaching fellow. Teaching fellows will be provided detailed lesson plans and materials. (If volunteers are interested in developing plans and bringing in materials for their class, they are always welcome to do coordinate this with staff.)
A bachelor’s degree, or currently working toward a degree
Experience in community health, public health, women’s health, or girls health encouraged
Experience with the design, development and implementation of educational curriculum, encouraged, but not required
