WHO ARE WE
Begin by thinking Avenues New York, Avenues São Paulo, Avenues Beijing, Avenues London, Avenues Doha. Think of Avenues as one international school with multiple interconnected campuses. It will not be a collection of schools all pursuing different educational strategies, but rather one highly integrated learning community, connected and supported by a common vision, shared education design and curriculum, world-class technology and a talented headquarters team in New York City. Avenues prepares students for engaged global citizenship in the twenty-first century, with an approach that combines language immersion, interdisciplinary teaching, a global curriculum, and a culture of creativity and deep collaboration.
The Global Extensions team at Avenues: The World School is looking for motivated individuals to join our diverse and energetic After School team.

Teaching Associates should be flexible and have experience working with children and families.
Our After School program, Private Care, is designed to hold a safe and engaging care opportunity with small groups of students in nursery through grade five. Private Care offers care beyond the regular school day with the highest degree of health and safety in mind. During Private Care, students will have a healthy snack upon arrival and the opportunity to engage in various games and activities or homework under the supervision of our After School Teaching Associates.
