Teaching for Change seeks to hire a part-time facilitator-instructor for the McComb Legacies Project in McComb, Mississippi.

The theme for the 2013-14 school-year will be selected by the students from one of the major Civil Rights Movement anniversaries.
Ideal candidates will have a passion for education and equity; ability to plan and facilitate hands-on, inquiry based learning; youth leadership development experience; knowledge of U.S. history with a focus on labor and civil rights movements; and be located close enough to McComb, Miss. to be able to work in McComb twice weekly in after-school sessions with youth and occasional other dates as youth leadership opportunities arise.
