OUR CORE VALUES
At OWN Academy, we believe that passionate teachers and professionals are an integral part of a student’s learning experience. We are engineering a new ecosystem of learning that bridges the classroom to the real world. The students of this generation need industry coaches that are passionate, empathic, and charismatic – to drive the next education revolution and shape tomorrow’s leaders.
We believe that the ideal learning environment combines theory and practice – and while the current education system does an excellent job providing theoretical concepts and knowledge, students lack the opportunity to apply their knowledge in the real world. Authentic, real world learning is only possible with the cooperation of schools, students, corporations, and industry professionals like yourself.
Genuine passion and ambition are contagious – this is an opportunity for industry professionals and students alike to discover new talents and be inspired.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR PROFESSIONALS WHO…
- Are eager to share their experiences and knowledge with aspiring young people
- Want to become educators of their own field/discipline
- Truly believe in the potential of the young generation and youth empowerment
- Can listen to and engage with students’ interests and abilities, and coordinate creative activities and lessons
- Have charisma and emotional intelligence.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
This is your next career milestone. This is an opportunity to be part of a talented and collaborative community of professionals with a common purpose: inspiring youth and transforming education together.
Moreover, you can teach and get paid. If money is not a concern, it will go to our scholarship fund to support underprivileged students.
At OWN Academy, we cultivate a culture of learning where industry professionals are continuously developing and reflecting on themselves as a professional and individual. The connections you will make as an industry professional, with both aspiring students and professionals from other industries, are friendships that will last a lifetime.
