Teen Program Coordinator

The Teen Program Coordinator (TPC) is responsible for the development, coordination, and direction of the Guides-in-Training (GIT) Leadership program (7th-10th graders). On some campuses, the TPC will also oversee Junior Leader employees  (Camp Assistants and Junior Guides). 

The TPC must have the skillsets to both connect with and coach young leaders, as well as excellent time-management and organizational skills to oversee the multiple projects and subtasks that GITs and Junior Leaders support at camp.

The Teen Program Coordinator creates systematic check-ins with Guides and other TLC members that work with the GITs and Junior Leaders, to ensure everything is running smoothly on both sides. They provide coaching to both staff and GITs in an effort to improve the working relationships within all groups. 

The TPC leads Leadership Workshops with the GITs each session, helping to prepare them for possible future roles as Camp Guides. 

This individual must be a confident leader with the ability to relate to young people, while holding the professional line. They are supportive and positive, with an attitude that encourages others to grow and come out of their shell—and most of all FUN (and patient). They should have experience with group management, especially with middle and high school aged folks. 

All of our Leadership Team roles have specific tasks and responsibilities, but there are a few common TLC traits we are looking for across the board:

  • coaching leadership skills

  • mindful communication skills

  • respectful behavioral management

  • intentional time management

  • guru of patience
