Position Description: 
I am reaching out today to share with you some information on the opening of the next campaign for our NALCAP program. As you know, The North American Language and Culture Assistants Program (NALCAP) is an educational outreach initiative of the Education Office of the Embassy of Spain sponsored by the Ministry of Education of Spain. NALCAP falls under the category of public diplomacy programs. As a language assistant, award recipients fulfill the role of a cultural ambassador through the promotion of English language learning and mutual understanding via cultural exchange. As such, their role is to encourage students of all ages in Spain to broaden their knowledge of the language and culture of the United States of America.  Positions are offered in schools all across Spain, running from October 1st to May 31st for most assignments. NALCAP recipients receive a monthly stipend to help cover living expenses of about 700 to 1000 euros and medical insurance from either the national government of Spain or the regional governments of Spain, depending on the placements awarded. Hours of the assistantship range from 12 to 16 hours per week. This is a remarkable international cooperation program in which over 40,000 Americans have participated since its introduction in 2005 taking with them an experience of a lifetime. The possibilities for both professional and personal growth are endless. The application period will be open from late January/February until April. No fees apply. For the exact dates when available and general information about the program, please visit our website.* We would love to set up a virtual or on-site info session for your department or university. Please contact me personally as to how we can best make arrangements for this event. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon. *
