Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

School Administrator Honduras



We recruit, train, and support local and international English speaking volunteers to teach in our network of Honduran bilingual schools. Currently, our 18 full-time volunteer teachers provide high-quality instruction to over 500 disadvantaged students at our two partner schools in northern Honduras. As we have grown over the past decade, our grassroots model has been sustained by robust partnerships between Hondurans committed to educational access in their communities and English-speaking volunteers drawn towards a truly authentic multicultural experience. Learn more about us on our website.

The School Administrator is an in-country team member who is crucial to the operation of BECA’s partnership model. At each of BECA’s two school sites, one School Administrator is hired to play a key leadership role within the school both on behalf of the volunteer team and on behalf of the Honduran School Director and Partners. The primary role of the School Admin is to work as a liaison between BECA volunteer teachers and the Honduran staff at the school, both in logistical matters like calendar management and facilitating staff meetings, and in cultural matters like assisting with event-planning for school holidays and supporting collaboration between a culturally-diverse staff. Additionally, the School Administrator is responsible for overseeing and running the school scholarship program, which helps provide access to higher-level education to families from a wide variety of economic backgrounds within the community. For these reasons, the School Administrator must be fluent in both Spanish and English, and feel comfortable speaking publicly, engaging in school board meetings, and having professional conversations with parents, teachers, and other staff in both languages. The highlight of this job is the "genuine" nature of the experience: seeing our students succeed in the classroom, getting to know students and their families, immersing oneself within a multicultural team of international and Honduran staff.
