Our Student Ambassadors are current teacher-candidates completing their B.Ed. or M.Ed. at universities across Canada. We will be selecting 1-2 Student Ambassadors from Canadian Faculties of Education to begin their volunteer role in the Fall of 2017.
Our approach to equity and diversity:
Teach For Canada embraces equal opportunity for all applicants. In line with Section Two of the Canadian Human Rights Act, applicants will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, disability, or conviction for an offence for which a pardon has been granted or in respect of which a record suspension has been ordered.
As an organization that works with Indigenous communities, we value Indigenous role-models in the classroom and encourage Indigenous candidates to apply.
Student Ambassadors have the following roles:
- Learn from community leaders and collaborate with peers in Toronto at the Student Ambassador Forum
- Lead Teach For Canada campus awareness initiatives on educational inequality
- Design recruitment strategies to inspire BEd or MEd candidates to apply to become a Teach For Canada teacher
Before you start, please confirm that you meet the following criteria:
- You are either a returning or incoming, full-time student in a Bachelor of Education or Master of Teaching program
- You are willing to make a minimum one-year volunteer commitment to Teach For Canada
- You are available to attend the Student Ambassador Forum from October 13 - October 15, 2017 in Toronto (all expenses covered by Teach For Canada)
If you have any questions on the role, don't hesitate to contact Brendan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: September 8th, 2017
