ROC at Qasid Arabic Institute
ROC at Qasid Arabic Institute continues to function superbly and expand appropriately. Under the direction of Senior National Program Officers Ruba Abu Hijlih and Umayma Shammari, 25 Volunteer Language Instructors travel weekly to Irbid, Jordan, to teach English to Syrian refugee children among four levels: Advanced, Intermediate, Basic, and Youth Under 10. While ROC at Qasid Arabic Institute is still determining how best to report on our work concretely, the average group size for volunteers is 8-10, and they spend approximately 4-6 hours teaching English each week. This translates to 50-60 hours of direct language instruction provided to a constituency of 60 children every single week.
