The Medical Coordinator is responsible for scheduling weekly events, clinics, and other daily activities for participants in the Medical Spanish Program at Pop-Wuj. These activities and events can range from conferences for Spanish students in the Program to outreach activities in the many communities served by the Program. The medical coordinator will also be asked to organize the orientation of Medical Spanish Program participants, as well as coordinating between Pop-Wuj administration, volunteers, students, doctors, and the community.

Pop Wuj - Spanish School Guatemala is owned and operated by a teachers' cooperative whose job assignments include teaching, administration, direction of projects, direction of extracurricular activities such as field trips, movies, and lectures, supervision of host families, and making teacher and family assignments. These cooperative members and auxiliary teachers also perform all the necessary day-to-day chores from sweeping the floors to rewiring the lights. The students usually find themselves sharing in these tasks voluntarily. Pop Wuj has very much a community atmosphere: we all get to know each other, and we try to make the school "a home away from home".


This position requires the commitment of individuals with a working knowledge of Spanish, interest or experience in working with rural communities, and at least a three-month commitment.
