OVERVIEW

VISIONS offers summer programs for teens that focus on meaningful community service, cultural immersion and adventure. We are currently seeking program leaders for summer 2020.

LOCATIONS:​ ​Alaska, British Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic, Galápagos Islands, Guadeloupe, Montana reservations, Peru


POSITION DESCRIPTION

Leaders supervise and mentor teens during 12-day to 4-week programs. Some locations have back-to-back sessions with a few days of break in between. Leaders work with and supervise students in all aspects of the program: service projects, recreational activities, cross-cultural events, and even day-to-day chores such as cooking and cleaning. The first priority is creating a positive and productive experience for the participants that cultivates growth and global understanding.

This is a residential program, with leaders and teens living together in a community center, rented house, or similar place that we call home for the summer, usually in a local neighborhood. We have long-term ties to the places we work, and thus are a part of the community. Leaders work hard, but the work is incredibly fulfilling when it’s the right fit. VISIONS leaders commit to a work attitude that is respectful, cooperative, positive, safety-conscious, and community-spirited.
