AFS Columbia Pacific Orientation Team

AFS Col Pac Host Student Orientation Group Leaders Needed

The 2018-2019 hosted students will soon be arriving and we are looking for 12 Group Leaders to deliver our AFS orientation content at the 5 orientations held for our host students during their program year. 

Our host student orientations are a great way to work directly with the students hosted in our team. You role is key to supporting their intercultural learning journey during their AFS year and you also can gain a lot from this experience. Do you like working with young people? Do you enjoy facilitating active group discussions? Do you want to develop your own intercultural learning skills? Then the role of Group Leader might be just the role for you!!

Group Leader Responsibilities:

  • Facilitate and deliver AFS orientation content in a small group setting (5-7 students)
  • Facilitate active discussion with teenagers in a intercultural environment 
  • Need to be comfortable managing constructive dialogue 
  • Ideally attend all or the majority of our host student orientations during the program year
    We keep the students in the same groups and ideally would like to have the same group leaders for each orientation
  • Group Leaders work in pairs

Training: 
We will provide training for all group leaders prior to each orientation. This is an opportunity to review the materials, ask questions, and discuss any emerging issues/topics that are happening with the host students in our team, that you need to be aware of.
