USA saatkond koostöös Haridus- ja Teadusministeeriumiga teeb valiku laekunud avalduste ja vajadusel ka vestluse alusel.

Eesti õpetajaid võõrustav organisatsioon on Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education in Cincinnati.

Kõik kulud USAs katab võõrustav organisatsioon, lennupileti rahastab USA saatkond koostöös Haridusministeeriumiga.

Biomeetrilise passiga saab osaleja taotleda reisiloa USAsse ESTA süsteemi kaudu ja selle eest tuleb ise tasuda ($14).  

 

============================

 

1. For over a decade, the U.S. Department of State, in cooperation with the Association of Holocaust Organizations (AHO) in New York, has helped organize summer teacher-training programs in the United States to foster Holocaust education. To date, this initiative has brought over 250 teachers from approximately thirteen countries to U.S. Holocaust-related institutions for training seminars.

 

2. Overall these teacher-training programs have been highly effective. Teachers were exposed to new and innovative methods of teaching the Holocaust, and by interacting with each other and with American participants, were able to gain new perspectives on the challenges of teaching the history of the Holocaust.

 

3. For the summer 2017 programs, the AHO has identified several U.S. colleges and museums/AHO institutions with space for one-week programs. 

 

4. The administration and funding of this project is planned as follows:

- AHO will administer this project in the U.S. in overall cooperation with the U.S. State Department.

- Hosting U.S. teacher training institutions will administer their own programs and pay for food, accommodations, local transportation, seminar registration fees, program materials and incidental expenses incurred during the one week program for which they are responsible.

- International airfare will be covered by the Ministry of Education, other educational organizations, or the U.S. Embassy in the nominating country.

Participants must be secondary school teachers (middle or high school) of social studies or literature, fully fluent in English. U.S. Embassies abroad are asked to coordinate carefully with host governments (e.g. Ministry of Education and Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and institutions in vetting applicants prior to placing teachers in the program.
