We amplify the story, voice and power of global youth. Founded by students at Yale after 9/11, we run training programs and projects for youth interested in global issues and social change.
We’re looking for energetic and experienced residential coordinators for Global Scholar – a summer residential program focusing on international affairs and social change for high school students. Coordinators steer the ship, overseeing learning, logistics and safety.
This is a great position for someone interested in global education, foreign policy, leadership, social change and youth development. Successful candidates will have experience leading residential trips / programs, and/or serving in a residential position (for example as an RA).
The ideal candidate will also be able to facilitate conversations on global issues like poverty and climate change, as be comfortable helping students practice skills like team building and public speaking. Note: most sessions are led by experts or trainers, so the Coordinator plays a guiding / facilitation role.
This is a one-time, contract position for the month of July. Coordinator will participate in 3-4 days training prior to the start of the program (timing flexible). Coordinators will live in university housing with Global Scholar participants. Salary will depend on hours worked and experience. Housing and meals are also included for residential staff.
Please send a CV and letter explaining why you're interested in this position. Be sure to detail any experience working with youth, managing programs, and teaching/coaching/facilitation.
