Stonehill Service Corps - India is an 10-month post-graduate cultural service experience. Corps members teach at Holy Cross School, a K-12 school with 450 students serving Aymanam in Kerala State. The school is operated by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
The program is open to graduates of Stonehill College in the current year or previous two years and the service term is June to April.
Corps members teach English and commit to the program's principles of service, spirituality, community and simple living.
Program resources will cover the cost of room and board, medical insurance, and travel expenditures to and from the destination country at the start and end of the program. A modest monthly stipend and in-country travel subsidy will also be offered.
Student Loan Deferment or Forbearance
This service experience may also allow participants to defer their student loans during their time in service. For student loan deferment or forbearance information, contact Eric Newnum, Associate Director for Loans, at 508-565-1394 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The India program is open to Stonehill College alums of the current graduating class and the prior two graduating classes. No professional teaching experience is necessary, but those with a strong interest in teaching are encouraged to apply. English is the only language requirement.
Orientation and Training
Corps members participate in a four-day orientation program at Stonehill College immediately prior to departure. On-site orientation and training is also provided upon arrival in India.
