Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Whether you’re working towards a career as a principal, starting your own business, founding a school, or working with an international NGO, becoming a Galileo Camp Director can be an invaluable component of your professional development.

As a Camp Director, you’re at the center of your own buzzing hive of innovation, hiring your staff, managing their professional development, overseeing camp operations, building relationships with parents and members of the community, and inspiring campers from preschool to middle school to explore and fail without fear. Plus, you’ll develop your camp’s own personal flavor, creating the traditions and culture that make your slice of Galileo one of a kind.

About Galileo

Galileo, now in its 14th year, is an educational organization that runs four summer programs at 40+ locations throughout the Bay Area, Southern California, and Chicago:   Camp Galileo (Pre-K- 5th graders); Galileo Summer Quest (5th-8th graders); and Summer Camps @ The Tech (4th-8th graders).  Our mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world, and we reach this mission through employment of our unique pedagogy, the Galileo Innovation Approach. At Galileo, we nurture creativity, curiosity and expression in campers, and believe in giving staff the opportunity to contribute their strengths toward the success of a program and company invested in their personal and professional growth.

Galileo has been ranked one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the SF Business Times for four years running, and over 97% of our summer staff say they would recommend working for us.  Being a Galileo Camp Director means joining an educational movement by becoming part of an organization that is a model of innovative learning in the communities we serve.  Our mission is achieved not only through working with campers each summer, but in nurturing the careers of current and aspiring educators. Our Camp Directors bring this vision to life.

_ Galileo Summer Programs Combine Five Important Things: _

  • Credibility & expertise :  Galileo has been in operation for over 10 years, and has partnerships with world-class organizations:  The Tech Museum of Innovation, Chabot Space and Science Center, and Klutz, to name a few.  Working at Galileo means working with success and experience.
  • Integrity and purpose :  Galileo’s mission—and how that mission is carried out through the Galileo Innovation Approach—is the backbone of the summer experience.  Join a movement of current and aspiring educators, united in a common purpose: developing innovators who envision and create a better world.
  • The best people :  An experienced, professional, hard-working and fun staff teach unique curriculum and deliver exceptional service to Galileo clients – both families and campers.
  • Wide appeal :  Effective, multi-faceted marketing attracts families throughout the Bay Area to Galileo programs.
  • Commitment to inclusion :  An aggressive campership program which widens our impact through reserving registrations for scholarship recipients.

_ Rewards of Becoming a Galileo Camp Director _

  • Lasting Positive Impact on Kids, Staff, Families, and Communities :  Camp Directors develop meaningful, multi-year relationships with staff members, campers and families, and inspire the spark of camp:  get kids excited about innovation, and teach them to make new friends, have fun, and build confidence.  And, each Camp Director leads a staff of exceptionally talented, fun, friendly people with whom they create something immense and lasting. In one short summer, you can become the example of leadership to which your staff will hold all future supervisors.
  • Leadership Training & Professional Development : All Camp Directors receive unique and exceptional training including: weekend management training retreats, weekly individual coaching throughout the camp season, mentorship, and access to Galileo’s network of prominent educational leaders. Camp Directors are given the tools, framework, community, and support to take ownership of and implement a fully-developed program. Also encouraged to be creative and innovative as they make camp their own, Camp Directors develop entrepreneurial skills and confidence in vision-building and program implementation.  Learn about:  grassroots marketing; staff selection, training and management; leadership; time and project management; and so much more.  Camp Directors are evaluated in June and August, ensuring the opportunity to learn from the positive and constructive feedback they receive.
  • Opportunity :  As Galileo grows, we are always looking for Area Directors, curriculum creators, and other full-time staff. Successful Camp Directors are likely candidates for such opportunities. Galileo also has an alumni network which connects people with outstanding opportunities outside of Galileo.
  • Financial Reward :  A first year Camp Director typically earns $10,000-$13,000, with up to 20-40% annual increases in subsequent years. Galileo is unusual in that Camp Directors participate in—and benefit from—the financial success of their camps.

Blueprint Math Fellows are full-time tutors charged with providing students with highly personalized tutoring in mathematics during the regular school day. Fellows work with 2-4 students at a time, delivering individualized lessons and working closely with teachers to accelerate students’ academic achievement.

The Blueprint Fellows program is an opportunity to participate in a year of service making a difference in the lives of students. Fellows receive a fellowship stipend as well as benefits.

While teachers have classrooms of 25 or 30 students, Fellows manage no more than 4 students at a time. This allows for the individualization of remedial and supplemental instruction in a safe space, where students are encouraged to engage with one another and explain their thinking. Fellows individualize lessons to meet the needs, interests, and passions of their students and deliver data-driven instruction that not only significantly impacts student achievement, but inspires students to be lifelong learners. By using math as the vehicle, Fellows foster critical thinkers, confident communicators, and engaged citizens who question, reflect, self-assess, visualize, respond positively to feedback, persevere, and internalize goal setting as a tool for continuous self-improvement. Fellows receive curriculum materials, pre-service training, on-going mentoring and professional development as well as written evaluation of feedback from their assigned Fellows Coordinator.

  • Observe, monitor, and assess students’ performance on a regular basis and record data to track student progress towards academic goals. Modify instruction and lesson plans based on student assessment results.
  • Tutor students using a variety of research-based instructional strategies designed to support students’ individual needs.

Planning:

  • Plan daily and weekly lesson plans using a predetermined curriculum.
  • Prepare instructional activities to support students in mastering specific academic skills, subject matter content, and end-of-course assessments.
  • Collaborate with classroom teachers and designated Fellow Coordinator to ensure tutorial lessons are aligned with classroom instruction.

Communication & Feedback:

  • Reach out to students’ families at least once every two weeks to update them on their student’s academic progress in tutorial.
  • Actively participate in professional development activities.
  • Meet with Fellows Coordinator regularly to receive coaching and both informal and formal evaluation and feedback.

Compliance:

  • Maintain confidentiality of student information as required by law and district policies.
  • Enforce school/district behavior rules and policies.
  • Perform other job-related duties as assigned.

Requirements:

Being a Fellow is an intense but rewarding experience. The following characteristics are what we seek from each and every one of our Fellows.

  • A team-player attitude with a strong sense of personal accountability and strong communication skills.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and ability to be flexible and deal with a certain amount of unpredictability.
  • The ability and willingness to go above and beyond to help support student achievement.
  • Associates degree or higher required.
  • Experience working with adolescents or related field preferred.
  • Experience tutoring or mentoring youth is preferred.

Fellowship Stipend and Benefits:

The fellowship stipend is $25,000 per school year. Salary may be pro-rated based on start date and/or program end date. The Fellow position includes a benefits package.
