23 New Peace Corps Volunteers Sworn in at U.S. Embassy

New Peace Corps Volunteers Sworn in at U.S. Embassy at the U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa, yesterday, according to a statement from the Embassy.

These 23 Volunteers will be working on community-based engagement and teaching English in Ethiopian Public Schools within the Amhara, Tigray, Oromia, and SNNP regions.

Chargé d’Affaires David who administered the oath of service said: “You have come to Ethiopia at an important time when history is being written and new opportunities are being created to build a better future.”

He also spoke to Ethiopian host families and communities as well, saying “Thank you for generously opening your homes and hearts to these Volunteers and for giving them the opportunity to fully experience Ethiopian life and hospitality.”

Peace Corps Volunteers live and work within small communities around Ethiopia. They often become members of those communities and collaborate closely with teachers and school administrators in Ethiopia’s public schools to implement the Promoting English Language Learning in Ethiopia.

Volunteers also will organize extracurricular activities, including promoting gender equality, using information communication technology and libraries to support English proficiency, and supporting teachers’ English proficiency and language instruction through continuing professional development opportunities.

The volunteers will complete their certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) during their two years of service.

All 23 of these new Volunteers are heading to their communities having completed 3 months of training before taking the oath of service today. This inauguration brings the total number of Peace Corps Volunteers who have worked in Ethiopia to over 3,700 since its inception
