Summer Intern

Galileo Learning - Multiple Locations - Full time

Are you a college or high school student ready to demonstrate your skills in a job that helps you gain great experience? Love working with and having an impact on kids? Want the best summer job? Ever?

Galileo would not function without Summer Interns. Their ability to switch focus from week to week, day to day, hour to hour and sometimes minute to minute is critical to the successful operation of camp. This role requires a positive, solution-oriented attitude, initiative, flexibility, and exceptional service mentality.

We value divergent thinkers who bring various experiences and viewpoints to the table at Galileo. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented groups and people of diverse backgrounds to apply.

ABOUT GALILEO

Galileo’s mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. We know it’s bold. We also know that we can’t achieve it without asking staff to be role models of an innovator’s mindset—visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective. It’s not always easy. Camp staffers work hard. Very hard. You can expect days in which there’s a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it. But part of what makes our culture great is that no one is too proud to complete any task that needs doing. Our camp staffers bring camp magic to life—for campers, and for themselves.
