Team El Salvador Seeks a Student Leader

Jump to Comments

Team El Salvador is looking to enlist a third student leader to join the leadership committee which will organize the TES practicum throughout the fall semester and lead strategic development projects on the ground in January 2013. They are now accepting applications online until midnight on September 28. To balance the composition of the leadership, preference will be given to MBA or IEP applicants.

Team leaders will gain invaluable experience as they practice leadership skills, organize an academic program and gain first-hand experience working with a civil society organization on community development projects. This is also an opportunity to utilize the skills learned in class while at the same time being immersed in the Spanish language. The variety of experiences provided by this position may add new categories of competence to your resume, and will definitely enhance your academic experience. Student leaders must have high 300-400 level Spanish proficiency and be willing to act as leaders as soon as they are accepted to the position. Leadership tasks include marketing and planning the program, recruiting and selecting the team, organizing pre-departure meetings and training sessions, and planning logistics, including travel. However, the most important role of the team leaders is to work with the TES faculty director to lead the projects on the ground in El Salvador in collaboration with our Salvadoran partners, oversee all aspects of the team’s work and activities, help troubleshoot and resolve problems, lead the follow-up work to prepare final project reports upon returning to Monterey, and help select and train the next leadership team. The time commitment is from October through mid-April of 2013.


If you are interested in applying for this amazing experience, please complete the online application and email your resume to teamelsalvadormiis@gmail.com by no later than midnight on September 28. Applicants will be contacted to arrange interviews once your materials have been received and reviewed.
