TOMORROWS YOUTH ORGANIZATION

We are seeking volunteer ESL tutors to be matched with our dedicated, passionate, and caring team of educators. Our teachers are seeking to improve their language skills so that they can better serve the children they teach in local refugee camps. As an ESL tutor, you would make a difference to the lives of the teachers and the children they serve. These are our expectations for the role:

  • Meet at least once a week with a teacher for 1-2 hours to practice conversational English via Zoom or Google Meet. Meetings can be conducted at a time agreed upon by the teacher and volunteer.
  • Be able to work with a teacher for at least 3 months. Willingness and availability to tutor a teacher for longer would be a plus.
  • Build the confidence of teachers in communicating in English by creating a warm, supportive tutoring environment.
  • Practice cultural sensitivity, professionalism, and trauma-informed communication during interactions with teachers.
  • Develop lessons based on the interests, levels, and learning goals of the Palestinian teachers.

Qualifications

  • Fluency in English
  • Creativity and positive energy for making a difference in the lives of Palestinian teachers
  • Past teaching or volunteering experience

Mission Statement

Tomorrow’s Youth Organization (TYO) supports refugees and marginalized communities toward building resilience and well-being amidst conflict.

Description

Our Education, Livelihood, Women’s Empowerment, and Mental Health programs are need-based, multigenerational, holistic, evidence based, and trauma-informed. TYO is locally led and internationally informed, with a team of local staff and international experts collaborating to provide contextualized services for the most vulnerable communities. We respond to the emotional, psychological and physical needs of the most vulnerable children, youth, and holistically, their families.

TYO serves the most disadvantaged areas in Nablus: the neighborhoods of Khallet al Amood and the Old City, as well as the city’s four refugee camps-Al Ein, Balata, Old Asker, and New Asker. The students, teachers, and communities in these areas are deeply affected by Israeli settlements, military bases, and military checkpoints that surround the city of Nablus. Facing ongoing violence and trauma, Palestinian communities suffer from overwhelming high rates of mental illness.

Despite the need, mental health services are among the most under-resourced and stigmatized areas of healthcare. To bridge this gap, our center serves as a safe haven and healing space for traumatized communities. We address the collective and intergenerational impacts of trauma by integrating mental health and psychoeducation into each of our programs to serve children, parents, and communities at large.
