Want to return to Haiti, use basic Creole I've learned

Location

Yorktown, VA

Area of Expertise: 
Language
Skill Offered: 
-basic skills in Creole -work in water sanitation projects adapted for situations such as Haiti -experience as an ESL teacher -previously a volunteer in Haiti -willing to lend a hand with construction (training in brick-laying) I have completed the Byki emergency relief course for Creole, which gives you a basic knowledge of "survival phrases," including medical phrases. I spent two weeks in Haiti and discovered that, while I need to be immersed in the language and of course do more study, I could communicate most necessary information. My science fair project this year involves water sanitation solutions for situations such as the one found in Haiti. I am by no means claiming to have the technical expertise of an engineer, but I hope that I can gain some insight and apply it when I return to Haiti. I taught an informal English class in Belize for a few weeks, and I am looking to become involved in teaching English in my local community. I spent two weeks in Haiti in summer 2011, where I worked on construction. I have also worked on construction in Belize.

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.
