Great employment opportunity during graduate program
The JCC cultivates a warm, welcoming environment for staff and patrons alike. The Aquatics Center strives to foster a team environment and employs active, child-loving individuals. Typically, a shift runs about 6-7 hours leading half hour-long lessons of 4-5 children. Varying in age and swimming ability, each swimming instructor is exposed to a myriad of personalities. As a perk of the job, instructors get to build relationships with children and parents alike and are given the satisfaction of watching children build their self-confidence and advance their swimming. On the flip side of the coin, working with children can prove to be tiring, both physically and mentally.
