HORSESHOE FARM FELLOWS

 

Opportunity: Project Horseshoe Farm, a community-based nonprofit organization located in the rural town of Greensboro, Alabama. We are currently seeking interns, and believe that your students at Birmingham-Southern College would be interested in the hands-on experience in nonprofit management, education, and community-based health care that our organization provides.

 

About: Project Horseshoe Farm (HSF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded on the idea that we must come together as communities around our strengths to meet the needs of our children, seniors, and adults with mental illness. Based in the rural community of Greensboro, Alabama, we believe that by working together and sharing responsibility for helping the vulnerable among us, we can create stronger communities and places to live.

 

Through innovative programs such as adult day programs, an Enhanced Independent Living Housing Program, and health partnerships, our organization helps support and improve the health, and quality of life, of adults in our community. We also serve children in our community through a comprehensive K-12 after school program. Our interns are challenged to learn about and become engaged in our wonderful community as they help develop, manage, and serve Project Horseshoe Farm.

 

We are currently accepting applications for winter term. However, applications for spring and summer internships will be held and reviewed during our selection process for that internship in the months of December and February, respectively.

 

To Apply: Application Info/Deadlines: The most important thing to note is that the application for the winter internship is due on October 27th. We will be taking one to two interns for this term. Our January internship is typically one month long, and takes place during the Exploration Term. You may apply for multiple terms, and we will consider you for each term independently. If you do so, please indicate your preferences on the application form where indicated.

 

In order to apply, please complete our application form and return it along with a resume to fellows@projecthsf.org. The second part of the application process will include a Skype interview for selected applicants only — you will be notified about these decisions as they are made. Applicants will be contacted with a final decision no later than November 10, as we are aware that some students will be applying for multiple internships.

Please save your application as LastnameFirstnameHSF before you submit it to us.

 

Funding, etc: Please note that due to the budget constraints of operating a local non-profit, this internship is unpaid. However, we will be able to provide free housing and utilities, so all you will need to pay for yourself is food and gas money.

 

In addition, it’s worth noting that rural Alabama has just about nothing in the way of public transportation. Having a car is a necessity in order to get around. In order to have this internship, you will need to have a car in Greensboro. Either you can drive down to Greensboro or you could choose to fly to Alabama and rent a car for the term; however, then you’ll have to factor in the cost of a 10-week-long car rental if you apply for funding.

 

The Internship: A great first resource for information is Project HSF’s website (https://www.projecthsf.org/). The website includes a whole section dedicated to the gap-year fellowship. The internship will be quite similar to a shorter version of the year-long fellowship, so this section of the website is a great place to start. Exploring the section tabs, such as the “About ” tab, the "Gap-Year Fellowship" tab, and the "Learn More" section under the fellowship tab, will answer a lot of your questions about the internship and give you a sense of what your time with us might look like.

Our dance classes and performances inspire all involved – the growing toddler, the child who is homeless, disadvantaged or at-risk, the child who has special needs, and the inquisitive teen. What began in 1975 as a new approach to teaching dance to young children of all abilities and circumstances has flourished into something extraordinary. The Dance Foundation is an organization now serving more than 2,000 students each week through our Community Partnership Program and Studio Program. The Dance Foundation is also home to dozens of artists and arts organizations for classes, workshops, rehearsals and performances with our Studio Use Program for Community Artists.

TEACHING ENGLISH IN CHINA

ESL Teacher

 

Opportunity: Are you interested in ESL teaching in China? If so, consider this important information. In China, the government agency responsible for the granting of Letters of Invitation is SAFEA (State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs).

 

Qualifications: SAFEA sets the following basic criteria for ESL Teachers: Hold a bachelor degree or higher. Be a native speaker.  Passport country is recognized as having English as their native language, OR hold an earned degree from such a country. Have 2 years teaching experience, OR Hold a degree in education, OR Hold a recognized TEFL/TESL certificate.

 

SAFEA has a program called TEFL in China, a 120-hour course not only providing the usual TEFL content, but with a strong focus on teaching in China. Chinese students are significantly different to western students in many regards, and social and cultural issues play a big part too, as well as differences in dealing with Chinese employers.

 

There are several TEFL in China training centers, but we are unique for one very special reason; our training center is run by HBUT (Hubei University of Technology) using experienced ESL teachers. We all very much understand the challenges a western teacher will face here, and we know how to deal with them. Moreover, we don't just teach TEFL; we show new (and even old) teachers how to be effective in this very different environment. How to enjoy teaching Chinese students; to understand their differences and what motivates them.

 

There are two parts to the TEFL in China course; one part online, and one part in-classroom. Candidates can arrange through us to take the online portion while still at home. This step yields an electronic certificate sufficient for the purposes of 3.iii, and allows a school or private institution in China to obtain a Letter of Invitation on behalf of the prospective ESL teacher. This allows for the obtaining of the all-important Z-visa to legally enter China to work.

A 7-day in-classroom portion will then be completed after the candidate arrives in China. Upon completion, the trainee then receives a hard-copy official TEFL in China certificate; the preferred TEFL certification in China.

 

As a university we have apartments available for our teachers, and can rent these to trainees during their stay at HBUT. The apartments are less than three years old, and fully self-contained including air-conditioning, kitchen with utensils, flat screen TV, PC with printer and free Wifi, and western-style bathroom.

 

Finally, HBUT provides ESL job searching assistance to all attendees of our courses.

Who We Are: The mission of AmeriCorps NCCC is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. In partnership with secular and faith based non-profits, local municipalities, state governments, federal government, national or state parks, Indian Tribes and schools, members complete service projects throughout the region they are assigned. NCCC service projects generally last 6-12 weeks and respond to needs in the areas of natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental steward-ship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. At AmeriCorps NCCC we are dedicated to building a Corps of highly motivated youth that represent the vast diversity of our nation.

 

FEMA Corps FEMA Corps is a track of AmeriCorps NCCC developed in partnership with FEMA and CNCS. The program reveals the inner workings of FEMA and a behind the scenes look at how disasters are managed. FEMA Corps members receive significant amounts of training and serve in areas that include: canvassing communities, developing disaster preparation materials, managing data and reports, and other organizational, administrative and logistical support. This track is a great opportunity for people who wish to pursue a career in emergency management and are looking to receive experience in a professional environment. Typical project lengths are 6- 11 weeks and/or disaster dependent.

 

Team Leaders: Do You Have What it Takes?  AmeriCorps NCCC seeks team leaders to provide experience and leadership to corps members in both our NCCC and FEMA Corps programs as they work to strengthen communities. Team leaders coordinate the activities of 8-12 corps members per team.

We are looking for dedicated team leaders who are capable and willing to engage our teams of diverse young people in service benefiting communities across America—team leaders who can promote a culture of learning and “getting things done” through teamwork. It is crucial for our team leaders, who act as role models, mentors, and coaches, to recognize that diversity extends beyond ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, age, and gender, but also includes values, perception, ideology, and experience. Corps members can come from highly advantaged or highly disadvantaged circumstances. By acknowledging the significance and value in our differences, team leaders will encourage a team dynamic that is truly invested in learning from each other and engaged in the communities they serve.

 

Team leaders build a cohesive team from diverse individuals through promoting a culture of safety, respect, flexibility, and openness. A team that appreciates the value that each individual corps member contributes will not only work well together to accomplish project needs, but inspire the communities they serve to work together to do the same.

 

Description: Safety & Logistics.  Ensure the safety of the corps members, including proper use of equipment.  Conduct or coordinate training such as skills building workshops, safe work practices, team-building exercises, mini-courses, and physical training in collaboration with NCCC staff. Projects.  Model a good work ethic and serve alongside corps members to set the work pace. Plan daily and weekly team schedules that will result in the execution of project objectives and activities. Facilitate, encourage, support, and model service-learning integration. Coordinate project logistics with Unit Leaders and project sponsors, participate in staff and corps member meetings, and serve as programmatic and administrative liaison between corps members and staff. Team building.  Supervise, motivate, direct, and coordinate a team of young adults in a structured program of service, education, and training; maintain order; develop team morale; foster teamwork; monitor standards of behavior. Manage team dynamics; assist corps members in dealing with stress; manage corps members with different levels of maturity; handle behavioral issues that may result in disciplinary action. Develop corps members as leaders through service projects and team positions. Conduct regularly scheduled team meetings designed to unify corps members by building consensus, resolving conflicts, and providing structured feedback.

 

Qualifications: AmeriCorps NCCC seeks team leader applicants who are experienced supervisors with prior service experience in communities, schools, the Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, youth corps programs, or the U.S. military, and who have demonstrated leadership experience with diverse youth. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, but there is no upper age limit; a U.S. citizen, U.S. national or lawful permanent resident alien; and have a valid U.S. driver's license. FEMA Corps team leaders must be U.S. citizens.

 

Member Benefits:  Team leaders receive a living allowance of $12,500, room and board, and limited health and child care benefits. Like AmeriCorps NCCC corps members, team leaders will receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award of $5,775 following the successful completion of the program.

 

To Apply: Create an account with My AmeriCorps, the onlineAmeriCorps Recruitment System at www.nationalservice.gov/nccc.  Submit an application to the AmeriCorps NCCC TeamLeader and/or AmeriCorps NCCC FEMA Corps Team Leader position.  Applications are reviewed, campuses conduct interviews, make selections, and correspond with applicants as needed.
