Full Job Description

Organization Overview:
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula (BGCP) is the largest expanded learning time organization in Silicon Valley, serving over 2,500 K-12 students at 13 sites in East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Redwood City. In neighborhoods where 1/3 of the youth drop out of high school, BGCP members learn the importance of education and become part of a community of learners, wanting and expecting to succeed in school. In three clubhouses and ten school sites, we implement proven social and academic interventions that most impact a child’s achievement in school and in life.

Position Overview
Each Summer, BGCP hosts a comprehensive, immersive summer experience for our high school students complete with academic instruction and fun enrichment activities. Along with BGCP staff, we also rely on Summer Teen Staff to fulfill important support roles in a variety of areas in order to ensure a high-quality summer experience for all teens attending BGCP’s Summer Teen Center at our Redwood City Clubhouse (aka “The Forest”), while gaining valuable work and leadership experience. Under the supervision of the Volunteerism Department at BGCP, Summer Teen Staff will be trained in youth development, peer leadership, ethical community engagement, and so much more.
