Internships & Career
Full-Time Teaching Positions
Paraclete Full-Time Teachers are AmeriCorps Volunteers who are committed to a year long service with us. We seek mission-driven individuals who strongly desire to leave our community better than they found it. As AmeriCorps members, our teachers receive AmeriCorps benefits if they qualify.
Individuals interested in residing and teaching at Paraclete please send a resume and cover letter to Molly Zollo, Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. A bachelor’s degree is required and conversational Spanish is a plus. We are no longer accepting applications at this time.
Once all of our slots are full, we welcome guest volunteer teachers who would like to teach a one-time class, activity, or mini-series of classes with our students pending Program Director approval.
