If you are looking for an exciting and a professionally rewarding way to spend your summer working with children, while gaining exposure to innovative project-based learning and design thinking practices, AND if you are a creative and a high energy person (LEGO aficionado a big PLUS), then Kidizens is the place for you! Working with Kidizens is an engaging, fun, and exciting opportunity to hone your professional experience working with children this summer.
Kidizens is a unique, innovative enrichment program for 1st through 6th graders (ages 6-12) where “kid citizens” create an entire LEGO city over the course of the week while learning about civics and city planning, government, economics, the environment, and much more.
As a counselor, you will be inspiring students to become good citizens and future leaders, in line with Kidizens’ overarching mission. Working collaboratively with and leading a group of counselors and interns, you will be responsible to deliver high quality camp experience every week for a group of up to 24 kids. You will oversee multiple pairs of children working as Co-Mayors for their daily city-related projects (including LEGO building activities), present lessons on a variety of topics and engage children in delivering creative content to enhance their problem-solving and critical thinking abilities.
Ideal candidates are thought/policy leaders, educators, professionals, and ambitious college students with prior summer camp experience.
