English for Refugees Fellowship
There are currently more than 60 million displaced people worldwide, people who need the resources and tools—including the language skills—to rebuild their lives in new places. Language is a critical skill to access basic needs, health care, and employment; and to weave a new community. Thanks to a partnership with the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), Marlboro College is able to offer the English for Refugees Fellowship for educators interested in teaching English to help people build independent and dignified lives.
English for Refugees Fellows will be embedded in a community working directly with refugees and immigrants at USCRI Field Offices where they will practice language teaching, get to know the stakeholders involved and learn about the process of resettlement. This experience combined with an MA in Teaching will prepare fellows for careers in education, non-profit program development, international relations, and policy making.
