The Paraclete Academy in Boston, MA seeks mission-driven teachers who want to work for social justice through education. Working with our 60 students, from 13 different countries who speak 10 different languages, is the basis of a profound term of service. Paraclete students are low-income (about 60% live below the poverty line) and fiercely dedicated to their studies, demonstrated by their regular twelve-hour school days.

We work in the after-school setting and have three overarching goals: to support our students’ academic development, to enrich their educations through explorations and to help families navigate the Boston school landscape.

Paraclete teachers plan creative classes that engage students through non-traditional pedagogies. We strive to incorporate hands-on, project based learning in all of our classes. In addition to teaching math and English classes, teachers are able to plan at least one class around their own interests to engage students in new fields like Comic Book Making, Forensic Science, Art from around the World, and Filmmaking.

Paraclete teachers enjoy free housing with amazing views of downtown Boston. They live in community with other recent college graduates who work at the Paraclete. This community is a wonderful spring board for exploring a new city.

Paraclete teachers receive a small stipend, food expenses and insurance. Teacher may also qualify for $5,645 Education Award from AmeriCorps.

Please note that if interested in the Education Award, as per AmeriCorps requirements, the position must be filled by a U.S. citizen, national, or legal permanent resident of the United States.

Career Jam 2014 is a day away!

Why You Need Career Jam

Career Jam is a yearly networking event where Skidmore alumni, parents and employers from a variety of professional fields will offer career advice, share internship and job searching skills and answer specific questions that students have. For seniors and juniors, it is a valuable opportunity to strengthen their network and build their career path after college; for sophomores and freshmen, it is a great platform to explore their potential, understand the jobs they are interested in and plan for their future.

I attended Career Jam during my sophomore year. Before this event I was not aware of the importance of networking and internship searching during college, nor did I have the motivation to get started to plan for my career. I was interested in finance and consulting, but I was not quite familiar with these job requirements nor did I know how to get in touch with people from the financial industry who could give me some advice. However Career Jam solved my concerns and helped me set up my academic and career goals. I have realized that there are so many resources around campus. If you look there is always a chance waiting for you.

No matter what is your class year, it is never too late nor too early to prepare for your career. You will learn more than what you have expected, so attend Career Jam and get ready to embrace your future.
