World is a Village is an Edtech platform with a mission: to connect teenagers across the globe through conversation and travel.
Our AI-powered platform connects teenagers and their families around the world to enable meaningful conversation and exchanges as well as homestay travel. We believe in the power of openness and communication to make the world a better, happier place. We have won recognition as one of the top early stage EdTech startups and recently joined the Founders Factory Accelerator Programme in London.
✋ Create an educational, fun and digital experience for teens to meet and learn from one another.
As a coach in the team you will be responsible for animating group games sessions with small communities (20 max) of teenagers, half french-speaking and half english-speaking.
Your mission is to create engaging sessions where everyone is encouraged to speak in a foreign language, in a fun and relaxed way, with help from their pals and from you.
You will create new pedagogical content for every week’s new games sessions. In between sessions, you will animate the community with quizzes, fun facts etc to trigger conversation.
Location: Paris, London or anywhere really as long as you have good internet!
Work Schedule: Each group games session lasts for one hour. For every hour of games session that you will animate, we will pay for 2 hours of work (to include preparation and community engagement during the week)
The coaching sessions take place in the evening (5 or 6pm UK) and on Saturday afternoons.
Package: Hourly rate to be discussed
