Great experience for people who want to work with kids!
After School Program Leader (Former Employee) – Daly City, CA – March 14, 2019
If you are in college, this job was perfect for flexible work hours from 3 to 6 Monday through Friday. It is great experience for working with kids through teaching and testing your leadership skills. A typical day would be showing up to work at least 30 minutes before the kids get out of school, so around 2:30pm. During the 30 minutes, you need to prepare your supplies like attendance sheets, sharpen pencils, review teaching lessons and outdoor activities. Then, prepare snack time in the cafeteria like setting up the food and drinks. Afterwards, your would go to your designated tables where you will be waiting for your 25 students who are in the same grade. After snack time, you will lead the class to the classroom where you will be helping them with homework and teach lessons. During the time, you will bring them outside to guide them to do a physical activity. Towards the end of program, parents/guardians sign out their children. The team of program leaders and site coordinators meet up afterwards to go over what went well or wrong and how to improve those mistakes. The hardest part of the job is leading a group of energetic kids who sometimes will not listen or follow the rules. the most enjoyable part of the job is the team of program leaders and the site coordinator because you grow to become really good friends and sometimes act as a whole family.
