YEA CAMP IS HIRING FOR THE SUMMER!
Take our quiz to see if you should apply to work at our life-changing summer camp for social change!
1. Want to work with the best teenagers in the world and have a super inspiring experience with amazing staff in a beautiful location this summer? Do you want to be an important part of a program training and supporting the next generation of changemakers addressing the pressing issues of our time?
2. Are you a dedicated progressive activist working in positive, peaceful, strategic ways to make our world a better place? Do you have experience in lots of different types of activism and are you supportive of a variety of progressive issues, including animal rights, climate change, anti-racism, women’s rights/pro-choice, and gay rights? Can you model being respectful of people who disagree with you? (No angry activists, please.)
3.Do you have experience working with teenagers (either at camps, as a teacher, or other youth programs) and want to mentor and support inspired young people who want to make a big difference in the world?
4. Are you comfortable as a teacher, facilitator, or public speaker to be in front of the room, direct a group of people in a loud enough voice, and lead activities in an engaging way?
5. Are you self aware, having overcome challenges and done work on yourself, and willing to go out of your comfort zone to be a role model for campers to overcome their own obstacles and move beyond their fears?
6. Are you willing to be silly enough to lead goofy name games, play “Big Booty” (don’t worry, we’ll teach you), and get down at the dance party, and are you also open-hearted enough to really share yourself in our community in a way that makes it safe for campers to be themselves and feel accepted?
7. Do you have great judgment to ensure safety such that parents would be thrilled to have you look after their kids?
8. Are you a good communicator, don’t create or encourage drama, and committed to being a team player – even if something isn’t going your way or someone is not behaving as you’d like – to help ensure a great experience for everyone at YEA Camp?
9.Does eating kid-friendly mostly organic, vegan meals prepared with love by amazing chefs (which we are now hiring for! Maybe this is you?!) sound delicious to you? (Gluten- and allergy-free, etc., available as needed.)
10. Are you available this summer to work at one or more of our 8-day, 7-night camps, as well as attend a 4-day staff training immediately before, in Massachusetts, New York, or California on these dates?
