ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A PART-TIME OR WORK-STUDY SUMMER JOB THAT WILL GIVE YOU EXPERIENCE AS A TEACHER, MENTOR, AND LEADER OF YOUTH? DO YOU HAVE SKILLS, INTERESTS, AND EXPERIENCES TO SHARE WITH OUR SCHOLARS?
We’re writing to inform you of summer job openings for the Wilson Community Summer Program at Wilson Community School. Information about our organization and the summer job openings we are offering can be found below:
Wilson Community School is a partnership between Alexander Wilson Elementary School of the School District of Philadelphia and the University-Assisted Community Schools (UACS) program operated by the Netter Center for Community Partnerships at the University of Pennsylvania. Wilson Community School (WCS) staff is responsible for developing and coordinating all out-of-school-time (OST) programming at Alexander Wilson Elementary, including the After-School Program, Structured Recess Program, and the Summer Program. WCS has secured significant support from Public Health Management Corporation for its programming, and also works closely with the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania. Now in its fourth year, WCS has quickly developed into a dynamic community school that provides quality programs which address the academic and social needs and interests of the scholars and families that we serve, and which is intricately integrated into Wilson Elementary School and the surrounding community.
The Wilson Community Summer Program (WCSP) operates Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, for 6 weeks during the summer (7/2/2012 – 8/10/2012) at Alexander Wilson Elementary School (46th Street & Woodland Avenue). Morning programming consists of enrichment activities based on the WCS Summer Curriculum, an experiential learning program through which scholars learn about subjects and themes such as literacy, numeracy, social and emotional learning, cultural studies, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Afternoon programming is dedicated to enrichment activities centered on themes such as civics, service, social justice, health and nutrition, ecology and environmental awareness, communications and media, social entrepreneurship, the arts, physical education, and team-building. Weekly field trips are both fun and educational, and weekly family meetings serve as a forum to inform families about current and upcoming events and logistics, share class and individual accomplishments, organize guest speakers and workshops, and to focus on community-building.
In preparation for our summer program, Wilson Community School is looking to hire qualified persons to fill two primary positions on our summer program staff:
Summer Program Teachers (SPT) – These teachers are teaching and service interns who serve as group leaders for academic, project-based learning, and extracurricular enrichment in the summer program.
Summer Support Staff (SSS) – These staff members are service interns who serve in a variety of roles that support the administrative and programmatic capacity of Wilson Community School. SSS roles and responsibilities will vary over the course of the summer.
If you are interested in either of these positions, you must write an email to WCS Senior Staff (titled “SPT or SSS Applicant – Your Name”) at firstname.lastname@example.org, and request the job application and detailed job description.
