Grammar Goof-ups: Fix Them Once and For All!
English grammar is complex, there are many rules and many exceptions to these rules. Non-native speakers generally make mistakes when it comes to proper grammar usage. Many of these mistakes are due to lack of education when learning the rules of grammar, poor classroom instruction when learning English, or fossilized errors that have not been corrected over time. Often the non-native speaker does not know he/she is making an error and is not corrected by native speakers. This webinar will focus on helping learners to correct their errors and learn strategies to teach forward to their students.

YAPSA: Youth Ambassadors Program with South America

YAPSA: Youth Ambassadors Program with South America

Application deadline: March 5, 2017

Do you want to be a leader in your community?

Awamaki is proud to present the Youth Ambassadors Program with South America. The program is a three-week youth leadership exchange program of the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, administered by Amizade Global Service-Learning and Awamaki. Do NOT contact the U.S. embassy!

The YAPSA program will send 20 Peruvian teenagers as well as 2 adult mentors to the United States from October 15-November 11, 2017. The program aims to engage young adults in Peru and Bolivia, who have a strong sense of civic responsibility, a commitment to community development, an awareness of current & global issues, strong interpersonal leadership skills, willingness to foster relationships among youth from different ethnic, religious, and national groups in Peru and to promote mutual understanding, respect and collaboration between the United States and South America. Participants will be required to implement follow-un activities upon their return home that will help them to stay in touch with each other, reflect on their experiences and integrate that learning into their day-to-day lives at home. An important goal of the program is that the student leaders, now empowered, will train other student leaders through student-led community-oriented service projects.

All applications MUST be sent electronically. Please read all instructions carefully before applying.
Awamaki is committed to ensuring a balance between participants of both sexes and to include participants representing diverse cultural, ethnic and geographic locations. Individuals who make it through the initial application review by our panel will be contacted for an interview in late March 2017.

All additional questions should be emailed to: Laurab@awamaki.org

¿Quieres ser un líder en tu comunidad?

Awamaki es orgulloso presentar El Programa de Jóvenes Embajadores de Sud América. El programa es un intercambio de jovenes y liderezgo de tres semanas del Departamento de Estado de los EEUU, Oficina de Asuntos Educativos y Culturales, administrado por Amizade Global Service-Learning y Awamaki. NO contactar a la Embajada de EE.UU.

El Programa de YAPSA mandará 20 adolescentes peruanos de entre 15 y 17 años y 2 adultos que servirán como mentores a los EEUU 15 de octubre – 11 de noviembre, 2017. El programa tiene como objetivo involucrar a los jóvenes en el Perú que tienen un fuerte sentido de responsabilidad cívica, un compromiso en el desarrollo de su comunidad, una toma de conciencia de los problemas actuales y globales, fuertes habilidades de liderazgo, la voluntad de fomentar las relaciones entre los jóvenes de diferentes grupos étnicos, grupos religiosos y nacionales en Perú y para promover la comprensión mutua, el respeto y la colaboración entre los Estados Unidos y América del Sur. Los participantes tendrán que poner en práctica las actividades de seguimiento a partir de su regreso, cuales ayudarán a mantenerse en contacto unos con otros y reflexionar sobre sus experiencias e integrar ese aprendizaje en sus hogares. Un objetivo importante del programa es que los líderes estudiantiles, ahora facultados, capacitarán a otros líderes estudiantiles a través de proyectos de servicio orientados a la comunidad y dirigidos por los estudiantes.

Las solicitudes deben ser enviadas mediante el sistema electrónico. Se recomienda que los solicitantes lean todas las instrucciones cuidadosamente antes de aplicar.
