; The just-launched Teacher Ambassador Program is recruiting retired, laid-off or employed teachers ages 21 to 65 who will receive a
salary, benefits and free housing
or a housing allowance. Classes

English. ; “The ideal candidate is between the ages of 45 and 65 who has a sense of
adventure and wants to contribute to cultural understanding,” says John Braman,
director of global outreach for United World College-USA, a network of international
schools that helps operate the program with the Ameson Foundation. ; China is eager
to recruit English-speaking teachers, Braman says. “The Chinese want project-based
learning, dialogue and critical thinking to prepare their students to study abroad.”
; Training for the inaugural group of recruits begins in late July in San Francisco with
additional training in Nanjing, China. The program requires a $100 nonrefundable
application fee and an additional $3,499 for those accepted to cover training and
placement costs. For more information go to: uwc-usa.org/tap. —Elizabeth Pope
