    Work from home and dedicate your time to a good cause at the same time

In Japan, it is quite uncommon to work until 9 or 10 p.m. daily, while schools usually end at 3:15 p.m. For this reason, many parents resort to the possibility of accommodating their children in an afternoon care, the so-called "gakudos".

In Tokyo we work with numerous Gakudos. These are non-profit organizations, meaning that the fees paid by the parents only cover the operating costs. Each Gakudo is attended by around 90 to 100 children aged 3 to 10 years a day. In the Gakudo, the children do their homework, play with other children or do sports, eat snacks and learn English. There are also regular events or excursions to which the parents are invited.

Many Gakudos are having a difficult time due to Covid-19: Usually volunteers from abroad support the local staff with teaching English lessons and with the planning and implementation of activities. Due to the corona-related travel restrictions, this support for the Gakudos is currently no longer available.

As a remote intern, you can work comfortably from home while gaining international experience working in a Gakudo!

Your tasks will include:

* Communicating with the children in English: Many parents hope that their children will improve their English at the gakudo. You will give the children an opportunity to communicate with you in English.

* Plan and carry out English lessons: You will plan interactive and varied educational games and teaching units in English that are adapted to the age and level of knowledge of the children and carry them out online with the children. The aim is to create a fun exchange for the children in English.

* Creating games and teaching materials: You can develop materials and resources that the staff in the Gakudos can easily use in everyday life and that make the daily routine more varied and interactive.
