Sunrise Fellowship for Global Debate (Beijing, China)
« on: July 16, 2015, 08:37:08 PM »
Sunrise International Education is a social enterprise based in Beijing, China and New York, USA devoted to promoting international education reform and international engagement. We are the biggest provider of extracurricular enrichment in China, and have been recognized by publications like the Economist and Global Times for our role in fostering critical thinking and civic values in a new generation.

Our main operations are based in Beijing, China, from which we run leagues and tournaments in every province across China. We specialize in activities such as debate, business simulation, model United Nations, robotics, and drama. We travel to local communities, give public lectures to generate interest, conduct school training, and finally return to host tournaments and large-scale events. Through this model, we nurture grassroots communities of student involvement in our extracurriculars, and begin a process of social empowerment for the next generation.

The Sunrise Fellowship for Global Debate is a one-year position with possible extension at our Beijing headquarters. Our fellows are placed at the center of our operations. They engage in public outreach in local communities, provide training and workshops, manage tournaments and assist with academic development. 

Core job responsibilities: 
Travel & Mentor: Visit local communities all over Asia, deliver lectures and teach-ins at schools, many of which are unfamiliar with the concept of extracurricular education. 

Run Tournaments & Training: Administer regional tournaments and conduct extracurricular specific training. This involves entering local communities and getting to know students, teachers and other associated organizations that make our presence in these local communities possible and effective.
