Manhattan Youth is looking for several part-time After-school Counselors and Bus Counselors to join our dedicated elementary and middle school teams for the 2021-2022 school year. We are seeking dynamic and energetic individuals to assist in delivering a wide variety of programs including sports, recreation, and competitive activities; STEM and other academic enrichment; visual, performing, and creative arts; and leadership, community service, and social justice.
As an After-school Counselor you will serve a critical role in our ability to deliver programs to the children in our community. Working with Activity Specialists, you will gain hands-on experience with students in our after-school programs. Counselors are expected to help create an environment that encourages in children creative thinking, verbal communication, independent exploration, self-confidence, self-awareness, and a problem-solving approach to conflict.
As an After-school Bus Counselor, you will play a critical role in keeping the children in our program safe as they move from one location to another. Bus Counselors meet at one of our 3 off-site locations to gather and transition students via school bus to our Downtown Community Center where they participate in activities such as cooking, spa science, digital media, and swim lessons. Bus Counselors should possess strong group management skills relevant to children including high vigilance, effective line up methods and youth engagement skills. Bus Counselors also participate in after-school programming while at our Downtown Community Center.
Qualified candidates will be punctual, reliable, personable, organized and fun. The right candidate will enjoy interacting with people, love being around children of all ages, have a ready smile, and a lot of patience.
We are looking to fill multiple roles in order to return our after-school programs to in-person learning. These are part-time, hourly positions available during the school year from September through June, following the NYC DOE schedule. After-school programs run from 2:00-3:00 to 6:00pm Monday through Friday. Individual schedules will vary by school.
