Adventure Club takes pride in its high quality staff, including a Program Director, Assistant Director, a Coordinator for Programming and Special Events, Coordinator for Program Quality and Improvement, Office Manager, Assistant Office Manager, Registration Specialist, and a friendly Receptionist. Each school has a Site Facilitator who is in charge of his/her specific program. All full-time Site Facilitators have college degrees and are leading the way in improving the program through their expertise. All Site Facilitators have a minimum of 60 college credit hours including 6-12 hours in child related course work and experience working with groups of children. Site Assistants are primarily students pursuing degrees in child related course work and are seeking additional experience working with children. Approximately 170 part-time staff members facilitate activities with the 1100+ children enrolled in the program. The ratio of staff to children is 1:12.
Each semester, part-time Site Assistants are hired to work at our programs. If you enjoy working with children, are dependable, responsible, and energetic, Adventure Club may be a great fit. It is a great learning experience for future teachers and for those planning on working with children and families after graduation.
