Are you interested in doing volunteer work as an Academic? Are you willing to share your knowledge, particularly in the field of global studies, with migrants, refugees, and stateless people?


At the Foundation Academy of Amsterdam/ School of Global Studies, we are looking for a volunteer academic lecturer to teach the following courses:

  • Globalization and Economics

  • Globalization and Politics

Project and job description


The Foundation Academy of Amsterdam is a small non-profit institute offering alternative higher education in the liberal arts and humanities. At the Foundation Academy of Amsterdam, we provide hybrid education by tailoring our programs to the needs and circumstances of our students; we employ both traditional and non-traditional methods, allowing students to study at their own pace, location, and time, with the guidance and mentorship of our volunteer lecturers.


In Amsterdam, we offer evening classes for migrants and refugees. Foundation Academy of Amsterdam is a platform for personal growth and community enrichment. We don’t have campuses and big classrooms. Our classrooms are homes, offices, internet cafes, even prisons. We use everything we can to transfer knowledge to those who cannot afford it but have dreams to pursue it and the courage to use it for a better world. Academic education should be affordable, accessible, flexible to all the members of the human race across the globe and even free for all! Education should be free for those genius and talented people who for various economic, social or political reasons never had the chance to obtain higher education. We hope through the Foundation Academy of Amsterdam we can play a role in opening the doors of academic education to especially those who cannot afford to explore their skills and talents.
