About the Opportunity
As mentioned, all of the teachers who facilitate Legal Awareness Workshops are law students. We are opening applications for the second cohort of teachers! Over the last year and a half, their first cohort teachers conducted workshops for over 3000 individuals across the country. All teachers who are selected go through two workshops before they are eligible to teach.
The teachers will be teaching content that has already been curated by the Content Team of OutLawed India. The individuals that you will be teaching will vary from school and college students to working professionals! The topics for each Workshop are curated based on the audience, and you will receive the same two weeks prior to your class such that you can be adequately prepared.
These Workshops follow a hybrid model of being online and offline.
