General Information about working the Youth Summer Program
Where is the Youth Summer Program held?
The program is run at about 13 different elementary and middle schools in Hanover County. Staff will be assigned to work at one site summer. Exact schools will be determined at a later date. At each site, the program typically has access to the gym, cafeteria, a few classrooms and outside areas. The program also takes a few field trips during the course of the summer.
How many children will be at each site?
This number varies from site to site, but generally there are around 60 - 125 children enrolled at each site. Daily attendance will vary from day to day.
What will I be doing each day?
Your primary goal is to provide a safe and fun experience for the children enrolled in the program. This could mean leading sports & games or arts & crafts to enforcing camp rules and regulations to leading a camp-wide activity or special event. Each day brings new adventures, so there is often no such thing as a typical day. Job descriptions are available at www.hanovercountyjobs.com.
What type of training will I receive?
At the start of the summer, all staff must participate in staff orientation. Program topics include a review of program policies and procedures, behavior management techniques, activity ideas (such as arts & crafts, sports & games), plus team-building and communication exercises. The training period is a vital component of a successful summer.
