Company: Boys and Girls Club of Hernando County Inc.
Location: Brooksville
Posted on: June 24, 2022

Job Description:

Description:Are you currently working in the healthcare industry or medical field and need a change of pace? Are you a stay-at-home parent wanting to go back to work? Or are you a college student or recent college graduate looking to get your start in a related field? Boys & Girls Club of Hernando County has an IMMEDIATE need for Youth Child Care Worker in Spring Hill and Brooksville who are willing to make a difference during our Summer Camp and school year programming!
Boys & Girls Club of Hernando County (BGCHC) provides fun, engaging, and educational summer camp and before-and-after school programming within 9 local public schools. Our Youth Child Care Workers, or Youth Development Professionals as we call them, are encouraged to not only lead the programs, but to participate. There's no standing around watching your members play kickball; you're the pitcher!__________
During Summer Camp, you greet each and every one of the 20-25 members in your group with enthusiasm for the day. Your group focuses all of their attention to you as you LEAD them through the engaging activities listed on the pre-made lesson plan. This year's summer camp theme is "Around the World" and each week has activities based around a different country. You'll show your creative side while assisting members with art projects, get some energy out while playing Double Dare or field games and use your brain for STEM projects.
Now, here's the best part: weekly FIELD TRIPS! You can enjoy the air conditioning at the skating rink, bowling alley or movie theater or get up close to the wildlife at Homosassa Park or the Florida Aquarium.
Aside from the fun stuff, you will write incident/accident reports and guidance notices to go home to the parents/guardians. You clean up messes. You perform first aid. You take attendance. Most importantly, you prioritize SAFETY. __________
During the school year, in your entry-level job as a School-Age Group Leader, you are the first adult a child interacts with during their school day. You greet each and every one with enthusiasm for the day ahead and take attendance. Your group of 20-25 members focuses all of their attention to you as you lead them through the activities listed on the lesson plan you'll create, following our schedule and world-class programs. You may turn a potato into a light bulb during STEM or recreate a Van Gogh painting in Art History. When the bell rings, you send them to their respective classrooms and clean up the program area. Then you are free to clock out, or possibly help cover teachers' breaks in one of our five preschools.
In the afternoon, Youth Development Professionals set out equipment and get supplies ready for even more fun. You, once again, greet every child with a smile and talk to them about their day. It can't all be sunshine and rainbows, though, and you will have to write incident/accident reports and guidance notices to go home to the parents/guardians. You help them with homework and lead educational games during Power Hour and play Freeze Tag during Triple Play-Healthy Habits. Every child is served dinner and you ensure there is no mess left behind. After your members are all picked up, you clean up and prepare for the next day of fun and exciting programming.Requirements:
