The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) is the largest non-profit, non-governmental study abroad organization in the United States. Our mission is one shared by many in international education: ‘to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.’
To fulfill that mission, CIEE provides both outbound international education experiences for university students, faculty, and administrators, and study, work, and internship opportunities for people coming into the U.S.
CIEE has operated in the Netherlands since 1993 and currently organizes a Social Sciences and Humanities program in cooperation with the College of Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam, as well as a Business and Culture program affiliated with the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Amsterdam.
The Queer Life and Activism course in Amsterdam is part of CIEE’s Global Navigator high school curriculum, three-week programs designed for fourteen to eighteen-year old American high school students who are interested in immersing themselves in a specific topic – in this case, the origins, evolution, and current state of queer life and activism in Amsterdam/the Netherlands.
Interested candidates should e-mail a cover letter and resume to CIEE Amsterdam’s Center Director Jonathan Key by the application deadline of 17 April
Interviews with selected candidates will be held in the weeks of 22-26 April and 29 April-3 May at the CIEE Amsterdam Study Center (Roetersstraat 8HS, Amsterdam).
