Facilitators of Learning

CurrentlyTrending is seeking Facilitators of Learning for a total of 1-2 hours per day. We are seeking professionals, retired, and current educators who do not operate under the traditional concept of teaching, to guide and assist students in learning for themselves - picking apart ideas, forming their own thoughts about them, and owning material through self-exploration and dialogue.

 

The hours needed are weekdays from 3:30-7:30 or Saturdays. If you have a subject, trade, interest or skill you would like high school students to learn, because it would make this world a better place and enhance their chances for future success, this opportunity is for you.

 

All volunteers must pass a child abuse and criminal FBI background check.
