Seasonal Part-Time 20-30 hours weekly August 2021 - June 2022
Looking for meaningful work in the outdoors? The Mount Hermon After School Adventures ("ASA") program may be the perfect fit!
At ASA, we believe that at the end of a long school day, students need space to run, play and get dirty! ASA Field Guides lead a small group of students in the outdoors, facilitate games and activities and create a fun space for students to explore and play outside. Most importantly, ASA Field Guides create a safe environment and guide students into loving relationships with each other and God. You can expect to work several days per week during the afternoon hours (generally 2-6pm) and be part of a supportive team. Applicants must have prior experience working with children, a fun-loving heart, and a flexible attitude. On any given day you may skip rocks at the creek, facilitate our roped tree climbing activity, or participate in a game of hide and seek in the redwood forest. No two days are ever the same!
The ASA is a Ministerial position. Ministerial staff render their work, stewardship, relationships and behavior as evidence of being followers of Jesus Christ while embracing and affirming Mount Hermon Association, Inc.’s (“MHA”) Christian mission, vision, beliefs and standards of conduct. They are responsible for defining, cultivating and leading MHA’s Christian community, conference programs, and retreats. All staff join into our community life of prayer, worship and spiritual activity, including but not limited to staff meetings, attendance at programs, Bible Study, and staff gatherings.
The After School Adventures ("ASA") Field Guide is responsible for implementing faith-based and nature-based after school care programs in a manner consistent with MHA’s mission, vision and values.
