About SID

Students for International Development (SID) works to reduce global poverty by engaging university students and young professionals in hands-on, project-based internships in extremely poor communities around the world. Our international volunteer programs support ambitious and independent young leaders who seek a platform for social impact through serious community-level projects.


Make high school accessible to anyone, anywhere by designing a one-room schoolhouse for the 21st Century. 1Room is a pilot-stage initiative to design an ultra low-cost, competency-based high school program that can serve the world’s most marginalized learners. 1Room aims to deliver a complete curriculum with as little as a single classroom and as few as 15 learners, for less than 15% of per capita national income per student. We achieve this through personal learning technology and staffing systems that can work offline and off-grid.

1Room is sponsored by PfID and several other NGO partners in the field. It is a complex initiative with many distinct components that draw upon, and that will build, a range of skill sets: curriculum design, digital content production, operations management, process engineering, monitoring and evaluation design, training and capacity building, partnership development, policy research, marketing, and market research.

  • Work with Curriculum Development team to create a user-friendly system for organizing digital- and paper-based learning resources
  • Create an organization system for other 1Room material (media, ongoing research, etc.)

Job: Early Childhood Librarian

11/15/15 –  Early Childhood Librarian
Colegio Franklin Delano Roosevelt, The American School of Lima, Peru

Sarah P’s comments:  An opportunity for a librarian with Pre-K and Kindergarten experience in a well-established school.  This school used to only hire through the established agencies and hiring fairs but now has the following statement listed on their employment page:

If you are interested in joining the FDR staff as a teacher and you want to be considered before the job fairs, you must register through Schrole click here.

I would still advise joining a recruitment agency as a way of expanding your range of opportunities and chance of landing a good position because these agencies vet you which saves schools time and trouble.



Our minimum requirements include:

  • BA or MA in Education required
  • Current teacher certification (Peruvian licenciatura for local hires) required
  • At least three years of full time classroom experience in the grade level/subject of an opening required
  • Experience in the International Baccalaureate Diploma, Middle Years, and Primary Years Programs preferred

If you are interested in joining the FDR staff as a teacher and you want to be considered before the job fairs, you must register through Schrole click here.

You will be asked to include the information we need to consider your candidacy as well as two references from administrators who have supervised you in the last five years. We will only be doing pre-fair interviews with candidates who registered in this system (which is free for applying to one school.)

If you have a file with Search or ISS you may send a cover letter to staffing@amersol.edu.pe indicating your interest. Please be certain to address all of the points in the qualifications above.
