SUM Associate, VISTA Horizons Student Enrichment Program DCD
Horizons at DCD provides high-quality, tuition-free summer enrichment programs in partnership with Dedham Country Day School. Our students attend a 6-week, full-day summer program that includes academics, swimming, field trips, and many other forms of enrichment. In small classes led by professional teachers, our students dive into rich curricula focused on literacy and math. Swimming and other confidence-boosting activities break down barriers to success, expose children to new opportunities, and promote healthy youth development. On average, Horizons students achieve 2-3 months academic growth in reading and math and return to school in the fall prepared and confident. AmeriCorps VISTA members will receive direct, hands on experience supporting a broad range of youth enrichment and development activities. Members will also engage directly with all levels of program stakeholders and offer ways to strengthen program activities. AmeriCorps VISTA members will be a part of a strong Horizons admin team, helping guide lead teachers, assistant teachers, volunteers and interns over the course of the summer. AmeriCorps VISTA candidates should be: -Passionate about education and children -Responsible, reliable, and able to follow instructions -Able to work well with K-8 children and with adult staff -Creative, innovative, and able to think critically -Clear communicators - both written and spoken -Ready to have a great summer with our team and young students!
