We currently looking for fun, energetic, and kind individuals who enjoy working with children. There are several different positions within each Growing Outdoors program. Take a look, and see if there is a position that interests you! The next trimester begins in early September 2017, with some staff training taking place before the program starts.
The Site Coordinator is in charge of all aspects of Growing Outdoors on the school campus from beginning to end. They will communicate with the school to find out about student absences, maintain attendance records, support all staff members, provide any necessary first aid, be the contact person with parents, and keep track of all programs running on campus. They will provide feedback to staff and vendors, and remain in contact with the Growing Outdoors directors about all aspects of the program. The Site Coordinator must be First Aid and CPR Certified.
Program Specialists are responsible for coordinating and overseeing all aspects of their exploratory class. They will be providing all instruction and maintaining a safe environment with the assistance of the Exploratory Leader. The Program Specialist will remain in contact with the Site Coordinator about any needs or issues that may arise.
Exploratory Leaders have the opportunity to work with the same class each week for the entire trimester. They will be making sure all students have arrived, assist the Program Specialist in facilitating the activity, stay in contact with the Site Coordinator about any issues that arise, and provide extra support to any student who may be struggling. The Exploratory Leader will then dismiss each student to their guardian or to a previously authorized person.
The Roving Staff member will have the opportunity to work with student of all ages throughout the program. They are not assigned to one particular exploratory, but make themselves available to work with whichever class has the greatest need any given day. Roving Staff may work side by side with an Exploratory Leader to help provide extra attention and direction for a class, or may have the opportunity to fill in for another staff member who may be out sick.
We are always looking to meet great people with an interest in helping children to learn and grow!
