Jusoor (which means ‘bridges’ in Arabic) is an international NGO founded in 2011 with the mission of Investing in Syria’s Youth for a Better Tomorrow. The organization has become known as a leading global actor in educational and entrepreneurial programs for Syrian children and youth. To date, Jusoor has enabled 648 Syrian students to further their education, enrolled nearly 5,000 children in primary education, and supported 82 Syrian entrepreneurs. The organization is known for its innovative approach to development challenges, high-velocity execution, and the strength of its global strategic partnerships and active volunteer base.
Jusoor’s Refugee Education Program seeks to ensure Syrian refugees in Lebanon have a holistic, well rounded primary school education and a strong psycho-social support system. The program is designed to prepare students to transition into formal education as smoothly as possible and catch up on gaps in education that many of Jusoor’s students have experienced. Jusoor employs Syrian teachers and administration staff and creates programs to support students’ parents in order to build strong learning communities to help Syrians succeed together. Jusoor has three education centers in Lebanon and serves over 1,200 children per year. Since the COVID 19 related lockdown, Jusoor has been teaching via distance learning.
We are hiring a short term consultant to work with our Academic Director to codify and improve our remote learning curriculum and empower our teachers to deliver top quality distant learning. The ideal candidate has strong research, analytical, and writing skills and it is expected the consultant will spend a significant amount of time at our three centers. S/he will provide day-to-day support and guidance for our teachers, and learn about the existing curriculum in order to codify and adapt to best practices.
To apply, please submit the following materials to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title “Consultant – Remote Learning for Refugee Learners in Lebanon” before the end of the day 6th October 2020. Applications without both cover letter and CV will not be accepted.
