Community Director for Innovative Education Program

Be an Entrepreneur of Fun

Want to trade in your cubicle for neighborhood parks, carnivals, and coffee shops? Eager to replace exchanges with automated telephone agents for meaningful, face-to-face interactions with parents, children, and vendors in your community? We have your get out of jail free card! Take a chance and contribute to the community chest by setting up and implementing a phenomenal, self-directed education program at a location near you.

Who Are You?
A motivated go-getter who believes in our philosophy and has the skills and determination to develop and manage a phenomenal site – one that is meticulously organized and staffed with extraordinary educators who play alongside thriving campers. You are exhilarated by the challenge of bringing Steve & Kate’s to a new community or amplifying our presence in an already established location. You jump at the chance to meet new people, flex your creative muscles, and find order in chaos. And as you build up buzz for Steve & Kate’s around town, hire and build a superstar team, foster relationships with customers (parents and campers), live and breathe our philosophy, and turn our program design into reality, you are buoyed by the knowledge that summer will allow you to rock your esteemed sneakers and shorts collection while thinking, “I actually get paid to do this?”

The Fine Print
The position is year-round with a 3-month break (full-time from January through September plus a few months to travel, pursue a passion, or potentially join one of our Fall Teams) and includes health benefits, vacation and sick time, paid holidays, and the option to participate in a 401k plan after a year of work with us. To enable you to connect with families, staff, and community members, hours in the spring are likely to include some evening and weekend time. Once your site is up and running smoothly for the summer, you should expect a Monday through Friday workweek of around 50 hours. We have locations through the SF Bay Area, LA, Seattle, Chicagoland, and are expanding to Portland (the west coast variety), Boston, NY/NJ, and DC in 2014.
