Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” Over 50 years have passed since he spoke those words, yet the truth of them remains. It is never fully clear what will follow when we act on our faith, but not to do so is to miss out on wonderful opportunities for others and ourselves. You might choose to join an Affiliate Chapter near you; or, consider starting one if none is close by. Local initiatives as well as immersion trips overseas are other opportunities. The information that follows can help you to take the first steps.

University of the Nouvelle Grand'Anse Logoe is looking for teachers to volunteer at this small university (120 students) in Jeremie, Haiti.

Length of stay can be anywhere between a couple of weeks to several months. The university follows the college and university schedule in the US. For this coming school year (2011-21),  classes begin September 5 and December 16. The Spring semester schedule is from January 16 to April 27. English and computer classes may fall outside of these times.

Housing and meals are provided. Visiting lecturers stay in a guest house with private or semi-private rooms. Transportation back and forth to the University from the guest house is also provided.

The University is looking for English teachers and computer teachers with competency in these areas.

The University is also looking for Professors in agronomy and business. For agronomy and business classes we require a minimum of a Master's degree.

Courses are taught in 3 week segments, that means they would like to see a 3 week commitment. The course level should be equal to a college or university level course in the US.

It is not necessary to know French or Creole, but it can be helpful.
