Volunteer Facilitators needed for iTELP 2017

Founded since 2012, Mind Alignment Centre (MAC) continues to empower young people to create transformational opportunities for themselves and others. By helping them to develop the skills, values and habits to transform their immediate environment and communities, we continue to identify, align and connect the next generation of leaders.

ITELP 2017 is an intensive 20-day fun-filled teenage leadership camp for young people between ages 13-19 organised by MAC, and set to hold between 31st July and 19th August, 2017. Young people from different schools and families would learn social innovation, develop problem-solving skills and engage in service learning projects at various community sites.

Through deep dive into readings, simulations, project-based learning and Human Centred Design lectures delivered by skilled and certified facilitators, TELPians would develop life skills and competencies to use their initiatives to solve real life problems and generate ideas for shared prosperity.

Volunteers are needed to serve as programme facilitators, using the organisation’s curriculum. Volunteers are required to be present at camp site by 28th July 2017 (for training and orientation). They also need to be present at the camp all through the duration of the programme. However, volunteers would be given a day off in exceptional cases.

  • possess good communication and collaboration skills
  • have a passion for young people and Africa
