Action for Education are excited to be opening a new dedicated space for refugee children aged 2 - 7 on the island of Samos, Greece. In partnership with The Pedagogical Institute of Los Angeles, this new centre will be a vital, safe place outside the camp where young children can be supported and guided in continuing their learning journey.

Key responsibilities of the job include:

  • Providing appropriate support and guidance to children in The Nest
  • Providing social support including maintaining an environment that builds the confidence, resilience and self-esteem of children
  • Motivating and encouraging children
  • Attending regular planning meetings
  • Attending fortnightly trainings
  • Reporting any child or adult protection concerns to the Protection focal points
  • Remaining flexible based on the project needs
  • Assist in AFE’s other programmes on the island, as required
  • Cleaning of the spaces twice a day along with the rest of the volunteer team
  • Receiving trainings delivered remotely by The Pedagogical Institute of Los Angeles and following their pedagogy to ensure consistent and effective implementation of the programme

Your set of skills:

  • Experience in teaching, preferably in early childhood education
  • An awareness of migration issues and sensitivity to working with vulnerable communities
  • You share our vision of a world in which everyone has equal chances to education.
  • Multi-tasker who performs well under pressure.
  • Willing to give long hours in a variety of roles and tasks

Volunteers are responsible to covering transport costs to and from the island. Shared accommodation is provided in our volunteer flat, though we each contribute a small amount (€20) to shared apartment pot every week to cover some of the flat costs and to purchase communal food.

To apply, please fill in the Expression of Interest form found at www.actionforeducation.co.uk/volunteer or send an email directly to us at samos@actionforeducation.co.uk.
Minimum commitment: 6 weeks. Ideal Commitment: 2+ months
