Summer Instructor, Woodshop Fundamentals

Company: Galileo Camps
Location: Walnut Creek
Posted on: May 17, 2020

Job Description:

Passionate about working with and having an impact on kids? Believe the world needs innovators? Ready to have a career-defining summer? Have a love for art, science, technology, team-building or education? Especially excited to share your experience with woodshop through our Go Kart Making and Inventor's Workshop majors?

Lead Instructors are the staff most well-placed to ignite innovation for campers at Galileo. We believe that our approach to learning isn't merely a pedagogy-it is a tool that will help shape the worldview of future innovators. Lead Instructors interact with their curriculum-planning ahead, reflecting daily and viewing improvements as opportunities. Lead Instructors bring to life Galileo's curriculum, thoughtfully created by our year-round curriculum design team. Lead Instructors are our ultimate partners in consistently looking for new ways to bring the Galileo Innovation Approach to our campers. Learn more about this role and working at Galileo in our jobs video gallery .

We value having divergent thinkers who bring various experiences and viewpoints to the table at Galileo. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented groups to apply.

ABOUT GALILEO

Galileo's mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. We know it's bold. We also know that we can't achieve it without asking staff to be role models of an innovator's mindset-visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective. It's not always easy. Camp staffers work hard. Very hard. You can expect days in which there's a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it. But part of what makes our culture great is that no one is too proud to complete any task that needs doing. Our camp staffers bring camp magic to life-for campers, and for themselves.

This isn't your average summer recreation gig. Galileans are expected to take ownership of their own performance and make this place better every day. People with a can-do attitude thrive here and those with a victim mentality don't. We manage to keep this level of performance expectation high in a relaxed environment; we take our work, not ourselves, seriously.

Being a Galilean means jumping into action to bring camp magic to life. Depending on the day, that could mean creating a gorgeous sign that highlights the Galileo Innovation Approach, donning a tutu for a skit, or playing a board game with two campers to build connection. Galileans know what it means to be a vital part of a team. Galileans want to grow. Galileans like to have fun at work. Galileans love sharing in-and helping to create-joyful experiences. After all, we run summer camps. You get the point.

WHAT YOU'LL GET

Purposeful work in a playful, supportive environment. Plus, you'll join a lifelong community that stands for innovation, credibility, and expertise. We're a certified B Corporation that is ranked #1 on the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area, were named one of Forbes' Best Small Companies and a Top 100 Impact Company, and are authentically committed to inclusion and equity company-wide-which includes joyfully upholding a robust financial assistance program.
