Program Description

Transfer your educational skills, your passion for children, and your compassion for others and teach in Egypt!

IDEAS partners with a school that was established in 1930 and is renowned for its high standard of education. The school currently has 840 students in the primary and preparatory school (ages 6-15) and 75 children in the kindergarten. The school has an excellent reputation in Menoufiya, a province in the Nile Delta, and there is a waiting list of students who would like to attend this school.

The mission of the school is “to provide excellent education and to build students' capacity to participate as quality citizens in the community.” While education in government schools is mostly focused on memorization learning and academic subjects, our partner school offers a wider curriculum, which emphasizes critical thinking, music, sports, and arts, as well as academic excellence, and aims to develop confident leaders and citizens in the community.

This school also builds social relations with the community and among the students and parents. 20% of the students are Christian, and 80% are Muslim. The current needs for this school include:

  • recruiting native English speakers for their English curriculum
  • creating an immersion program while making school a fun place, encouraging the children to come to school rather than staying home or roaming the streets
  • improving the English skills of children while doing activities such as art, music, and sports
  • working with children to help them overcome their individual language acquisition challenges
  • English language proficiency
  • Bachelor’s Degree preferred; non-teaching degree accepted
  • Excellent opportunity for experienced retirees or possible “gap year” students
  • Interested in gaining educational experience in an international setting
  • Sensitive to culture and customs
  • Flexible and adaptable
