Job Description

 

Program Administrator is an in-country team member who is crucial to the operation of BECA’s partnership model. At each of BECA’s three school sites, one Program Administrator is hired to play a key leadership role within the school both on behalf of the volunteer team and on behalf of the Honduran School Director and our Partner. The primary role of the Program Admin is to work as a liason between BECA volunteer teachers and the Honduran staff at the school both in logistical matters like calendar and staff meetings and in cultural matters like assisting with event-planning for school holidays and supporting collaboration between a culturally-diverse staff.
