Journalism Degree, so can teach English; Warm, Friendly; Love Children; Eager and Willing to Help in Almost any way

I would like to travel to Haiti for one week to 10 days with my 15-year-old son. We would like to help in any way possible, though we are both friendly and outgoing and would likely do well in volunteering that has us closely interacting with people, perhaps distributing supplies or food. I also have a journalism degree and plan to go back to school for my masters in teaching. I am capable of teaching english and/or tutoring.

Restavec Freedom Alliance

Restavec Freedom Alliance is dedicated to providing relief for the Restavek children, children who are “given” to families and used as slaves in Haiti. Our mission is to offer a safe, stable, family centered environment for these children so that each child can receive the childhood they deserve – nothing like their life as a Restavek. Each child will have access to an education, medical support, loving care, psychiatric care, and adequate food, clean water and sanitary facilities.

HaitiCorps International

Haiticorps was founded in the days following the major earthquake of January 12, 2010 that destroyed a good part of Port-au-Prince, Haiti and surrounding towns. From this devastation grew an urgency from children, grandchildren, and allies of Ayiti Toma (the Kreyòl name for Haiti) to work to restore Haiti and her proud people to their fullest potential. Haiticorps was founded to help with this tremendous undertaking through collaboration and building human capital.

Multilingual (including Haitian Creole) with 5 years experience as educator

Location

Fort Lauderdale, FL

Area of Expertise: 
Language
Skill Offered: 
Teacher (5yrs experience), translator, Haitian Creole (conversational), Spanish (fluent), Portuguese (fluent), ecology & sustainability (amateur)
Goods Offered: 
Educational materials / books

I would like to find a charitable organization that has the need for a teacher and/or a person committed to doing any task (from helping to build homes / schools for earthquake victims to working on sustainable agricultural projects) where knowledge of Haitian Creole would be an asset.

If coordination with other programs is necessary, I would enjoy helping with editing and translation as I have a background in these areas. My main ability is teaching (I have an MA in linguistics / Second language acquisition and ESL certification), so, of course, this is the area I would enjoy helping the most. I have experience with adolescents and young adults, but I have taught younger students.
