Want to gain a unique teaching and leadership experience, and share the excitement of computer science, entrepreneurship, and leadership with excelling Palestinian and Israeli youth?
Become a MEET instructor and you will make a lasting difference in the lives of young Palestinians and Israelis.
Established in 2004, MEET is an educational initiative that has inspired a network of young leaders to take action towards positive political and social change in the Middle East. In partnership with MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), MEET delivers an intensive three-year student program focused on technology, entrepreneurship, and leadership. As an instructor, you will design and teach fast-paced, month-long computer science or entrepreneurship classes during the summer in Jerusalem.
Instructors work as a team to prepare and deliver the curriculum to students who are 15-17 years old.
Instructors are required to attend a preparation weekend at MIT before arrival in the Middle East in addition to MISTI preparatory workshops. These sessions cover basic information around travel in the region, background information on the organization, and teaching workshops.
Students accepted to teach at MEET will also fill in a MISTI application and travel to the region as part of the MISTI-MEET program.
The approximate dates for the program are late July through late August, during which each instructor will go through training and preparation, teach, and follow up with documentation and recaps.
MEET organizes trips for MIT instructors to explore the region during their time off. Past trips have included weekend outings to historical sights and camping trips. As an instructor you will receive room and board and a small stipend to cover all incidental living expenses.
