Education Internship at Small Non-Profit in China - Help Disadvantaged Schools and Students
- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
We are D&A!
The small non-profit trying to make a big difference in education!
Founded in China nearly 6 years ago by Dec and Any initially as a Non-Profit English Language School, we now work with schools worldwide to provide them, and the lovely students who attend them, with free educational materials, classroom supplies, consultation and training. We believe that everyone should have access to the very best education, not just a privilege few, and over the past 6 years we are proud to say that we have helped hundreds of students get access to just that.
We are looking for people to join us in this fascinating country, either as volunteers or interns, to help us grow from the tiny non-profit we are into something with the power to make real change to people lives globally.
Each person who joins gives us the chance to help hundreds of more students all over the world, and grow new connections with schools that need our help. You'll also get the chance to shape what D&A will become in the future, a journey we are extremely excited to have started following successfully reaching our self-funding goals.
The following positions are available with us, we take each applicant on a case by case basis, experience as a teacher or education professional isn’t always necessary so don’t hesitate in applying:
