This may include a sports team, fine arts activity or a club monitored by an adult. Duties also include helping students with homework, projects or other endeavors. Program Assistants, in addition to accounting for the whereabouts our students, should help keep them on task so they can finish their work in the time assigned.

Other talents brought to the table may be considered for special programs.

This position is ideal for someone who is looking to work a few hours in the afternoon, is creative, child oriented, responsible, and dedicated. The candidate must also be willing to be assertive and firm when interacting with students who are in their formative years and have ideas and opinions which may differ from those in authority.
