A+ Summer Leadership Instructor
Camp Location: Yale University
Camp Dates: June 25 - July 1, 2017
The Leadership Instructor is responsible for guiding high school and/or middle school students through Education Unlimited’s leadership curriculum, which focuses on public speaking and helping students develop a personal leadership style through creative and entrepreneurial leadership projects. Instructors teach daily seminars and workshops, and should be natural leaders and enthusiastic about working with young people. Instructors should be prepared to give 4-5 lectures throughout the week, and also manage students in breakout sessions and oversee student groups. Instructors will also be responsible for tracking student work and handing in any deliverables to the camp director and EU home office.
In the past, instructors have been professionals and educators with start-up experience, or community and school leaders. This is a unique program that focuses on creating future leaders, and the best candidates are passionate about teaching, leadership, community organizing, and entrepreneurial-thinking.
In addition to teaching responsibilities, instructors should be available and willing to assist the camp director with active supervision, recreational activities, and some administrative tasks. Instructors should be mature, reliable, and able to work well with fellow staffers. Instructors are also expected to act as mentors, and will help lead field trips and guide students on excursions. With the support of the entire staff, instructors are responsible for the health and safety of students, in addition to fulfilling instructional objectives.
This is a residential position — room, board, and parking on campus is provided for the duration of the program. We will also consider instructors who wish to commute daily but preference is given for those candidates who are willing to live on campus and assist with dorm supervision. Instructors may be hired for one session or for multiple sessions of this program. Please indicate your availability on your application.
