We're looking particularly for individuals with a background working with refugees and asylum seekers.
Applicants should have experience in teaching but also individuals with creativity, enthusiasm and a wide range of other skills are very welcome!
Minimum commitment: 6 Weeks (a shorter commitment will be considered during march/april)
Shared dormitory-styled accommodation provided. (N.B. we all chip in a small amount each week to cover food for the flat and some utility costs).

ABOUT THE PROJECT
Amongst the uncertainty experienced by displaced women in Athens who are seeking new and safe livelihoods away from war, persecution and discrimination, the Halcyon Days Project aims to provide spaces of physical and emotional security and of vitality and optimism, where women are supported in developing skills and confidence to rebuild and thrive in their new communities.
Together, Action For Women and Action For Education are starting a Learning Centre for women and girls age 14+.
We're open 6 days a week during which students can access extensive or intensive trauma-informed language courses, support in taking language exams, computer-based and vocational courses, community-based activities and discussion groups.
