What you will be doing:

You are the unsung hero of your classroom. Your lead counselor relies on you. With your help, each child receives customized support they need. Your whole class dives into each project with the seamless preparation and support you provide. A rock-start assistant counselor makes a rock-star lead counselor. This teamwork results in an unforgettable summer experience.

You’re the right person for the team if:

You have experience working with 3-12-year-old children (1+ year preferred).

You love learning new technology and skills.

You are positive. You ask “how to make it work?” before asking “will it be possible?”

You seek feedback and welcome others to show different perspectives and more effective ways to help you grow.

You are empathetic and caring. You love children.

You are full of quirky and fun energy that can keep up with the 3-12yo energy balls :-)

You unify the team. You help nurture a loving and caring environment that upholds the values of empathy and compassion.

Btw, you do NOT need to have a background in STEM. We have a thorough training program for those who love learning new things!
