Summer Master Teachers and Assistant Teacher/Counselors, Yleana Leadership Academy

Posted by Yleana Leadership Academy on April 4, 2016

The Yleana Leadership Academy is interested in recruiting students of color as Master Teachers and Assistant Teacher/Counselors; our children are primarily students of color. We are interested in recruiting both grads and undergrads as assistant teachers and master teachers at Yleana during the summer. We’re looking specifically for people who would be willing to work hard and have an amazing time creating a summer camp experience for kids; it’s a ton of work but a LOT of fun! Assistant teachers would need to score a 650 on our hiring assessment; master teachers would need to score a 720 on our hiring assessment. Please note that these 650/720 score cutoffs are the scores our teachers would get NOW, on our hiring assessment, which is composed of pieces of the 2016 redesign of the SAT (which no student has taken yet). This score likely will not reflect the score they got as incoming freshmen; most people, regardless of the score at which they entered, amass enough knowledge during college to bolster their high school scores significantly.

Here’s a link to our specific job descriptions:

2016 Employment Dates: June 21 – August 15, 2016

To apply, please send a resume and cover letter to We are recruiting throughout the year leading up to this summer; the deadline for the second round of applications is March 1, 2016. We review applications submitted after March 1, but give priority to applications submitted in the first or second round of hiring. An earlier application submission improves your chances of being considered.

[Note: These summer positions are in upstate NY and Western Mass but this program serves Philadelphia children.]
