Job Description:

Passionate about working with and having an impact on kids? Believe the world needs innovators? Ready to have a career-defining summer? Especially excited to share your experience with engineering through Galileo Summer Quest majors like Drone Innovators, Inventor's Workshop or Mystery Room?

Lead Instructors are the staff most well-placed to bring innovation to life at Galileo. We believe that our approach to learning isnt merely a pedagogyit is a tool that will help shape the worldview of future innovators. Lead Instructors interact with their curriculumplanning 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. They are our ultimate partner in consistently looking for new ways to bring the Galileo Innovation Approach to our campers.

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 GALILEOGalileos mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. We know its bold. We also know that we cant achieve it without asking staff to be role models of an innovators mindsetvisionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective. Its not always easy. Camp staffers work hard. Very hard. You can expect days in which theres a ton to get done and not a ton 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 lifefor campers, and for themselves.

This isnt 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, but not ourselves, seriously.

Being a Galilean means jumping into action to bring camp magic to life. Depending on the day, that could mean donning a tutu for a skit, creating a gorgeous sign that highlights the Galileo Innovation Approach, or playing a board game with two campers to build connection.
