Community Centre Manager
When applying for a position as a Community Centre Manager (CCM) it is important that you understand your profile, our vision and the cause you will be working for. Being a CCM does not equal living a lavish lifestyle. You will be educating an underserved community teaching different ethnic groups between 7-70 years old.
Through you and the volunteer teacher’s professionalism, your students will be able to grab opportunities that may occur in their life. By learning and being educated, your students will have a feeling of success which is amongst the necessities to break the cycle of poverty. Our community centres offer free English, IT & Motivation education to underserved communities. We believe in education as the best weapon to fight poverty.
This means you have to be passionate about empowering underserved communities. If you have experience in this field of work you will already have a sense of what to expect. However, as a first-timer, you must be aware that teaching and living in rural areas might come across as a cultural shock. Therefore, dedication to the cause is a must. Through your work, you will be contributing to a society raised with difficult challenges, poverty and a lack of self-belief.
On a personal level, you will learn and benefit a lot from being devoted to managing the daily tasks of a community centre made for serving an underserved community.
We will offer you a visa, 1 month of training, EPF, SOSCO and free basic accommodation. You will be applying for our community centres in Johor, Terengganu & Langkawi.
