Company: Galileo Learning
Posted on: June 17, 2022
Program/Location : Location: US-CA-Milpitas :
Passionate about working with and having an impact on kids? Do you
thrive in new environments and love supporting the needs of a team?
Have a love for art, science, technology, team-building or
education that you can't wait to share? Believe the world needs
innovators? Ready to have a career-defining summer?
Substitutes fill in for absences lasting a day, a week, and
sometimes longer, and are scheduled to work only when regular staff
members are absent. The Substitute Instructor role is the perfect
opportunity for those inspired by the idea of a Galileo summer, and
who are open to or require a more flexible summer commitment.
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.
Galileo Learning brings best-in-class educational programs to tens
of thousands of kids each year through almost 100 in-person summer
day camps across the country. We believe that the world needs
innovators and that innovation can be taught. We think kids who
learn to explore and who are willing to tackle challenges despite
their fears are happier, more creative, and more confident. And we
think kids with these skills are more likely to change our world
and be the masters of their own.
We also know that we can't achieve our mission without staff who
are role models of innovation - visionary, courageous,
collaborative, determined and reflective. It's not always easy, and
our camp staff work hard. But part of what makes our camps great is
our staff's commitment to sharing in and bringing camp magic to
life-for campers, and for themselves, whether that looks like
donning a chicken hat for a skit, or playing a board game with two
campers to build connection. Galileans take ownership of their own
performance to make this place better every day. They grow a ton,
and have fun while doing it. Check out our jobs videos for more
about this role and working at Galileo.
