Teaching Positions
Habla generally hires teachers for the following year the previous May, but we do have positions sometimes opening throughout the year. We look for English and Spanish teachers who are passionate about education and teaching and plan on living in Merida for an extended period. Since we have classes with kids, teenagers, and adults, teachers experienced with any age are welcome to apply. Most of our teaching positions are part-time.

Habla offers two kinds of internships: administrative and teaching. Internships are available for the following dates:
Summer: June 15-August 7
Fall: September 1-December 15
Spring: January 1-June 20

Administrative internships offer the experience of learning how to build a community center that has both local roots and international outreach. The intern will work closely with Habla staff planning, implementing, and marketing a range of international events. Habla also places a high value on documentation: capturing what happens at Habla through photography, film, and writing. Interns will assist our language teachers in documenting and sharing educational experiences at Habla.

Teaching internships offer the opportunity to work besides Habla’s teachers in a range of possible classes: English, Spanish, and/or the arts. Summer teaching interns will co-teach children ages 7-11 in Habla’s summer arts school, The Creative Space [link to this webpage]. Fall and Spring interns will work besides language and/or arts teachers in courses running throughout the semester.

Habla does not provide financial support for administrative or teaching internships. Internships are designed for students who have just graduated from college or are taking a semester off and would like experience working in a community center and arts organization abroad.
