Envoys is always looking for talented staff to lead our trips. Are you the right person for Envoys?
You enjoy working with children, outdoors activities, and foreign travel. Yes, that’s everybody. Now let’s narrow it down a bit.
You are excited about the education-for-global-competency movement. You have seen the rise of global education and believe that this trend is part of making the world a better place. However, you want to see the trend move beyond a series of lists and frameworks to the actual work of building real, measurable, skills.
You know that the potential for educational experiences outside of the classroom is immense, and that such experiences require detailed planning and preparation. You believe that intentionality, curriculum, and assessment are required for educational travel to be worth the investment that schools and families are making.
You have proven expertise and academic training in education, international development, business, environmental sciences, and/or media production. You are comfortable delivering online, regular, and experiential lessons on these topics.
You have professional and academic references who will attest to your greatness. You are extremely comfortable in foreign environments and can model behaviors of empathy and cultural sensitivity.
You rock with technology (or, at least, you are not afraid to learn). You are flexible, hard-working, and willing to go ‘all-in’ to do something great.
