Our Regional Directors (internally referred to as Area Directors) are passionate about working with kids and making an impact. They think innovation is important-so important that it's at the cornerstone of how they lead, motivate, and inspire their staff. They are effective project managers, detail-oriented operations specialists, and visionary entrepreneurs. They care about our culture, our work, our development, and our community efforts. They embody our values of being visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined, and reflective. They are Galileo. 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. Timeline: the hiring process can range from 3-8 weeks; April or May start dates, depending on region. Who are you? You live and breathe the Galileo mission. You believe in innovation. You believe that when kids are fearless, they learn and care more deeply. You believe that these fearless innovators will go on to change the world. You're a leader - a servant leader - at heart. You believe that the best managers are ones who serve and support their teams, and you measure your success in large part by the success of those around you. You're a lifelong learner. Growth mindset is your mantra. You're eager to build on and develop skills in project and people management. You have an extensive hat collection. You wear many of them. You operate with an all-hands-on-deck mentality and understand that there's no task too small, especially when your impact is so big. You're an adept time manager. Juggling isn't just a party trick-it's your specialty. You know when to switch gears from detail management to supportive mentorship. You're a glass-half-full hard worker. You're committed to quality and are prepared to put in long hours when necessary. You take ownership over your own performance and strive to make Galileo-and yourself-better every day. Who are we? We think the world needs innovators. We also think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear-the essence of innovation-are happier, more creative and more confident when faced with life's challenges. And we think kids with these skills are more likely to change our world and be the masters of their own. Founded in 2002, Galileo operates summer day camp programs at 70+ locations throughout the Bay Area, SoCal, and Chicago. Our mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world, and we reach this mission through employment of our unique pedagogy, the Galileo Innovation Approach. We've been ranked one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the SF Business Times for eight years running, and over 97% of our summer staff say they would recommend working for us.

Galileo is looking for program visionaries to direct current or new Camp Galileo and Galileo Summer Quest sites for the 2020 season. Summer Program Directors (internally referred to as Camp Directors) are outstanding leaders who assume overall leadership of a summer day camp location, including staff hiring and management, day-to-day operations, and creating a joy-filled camp culture. 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. Who are you? You're inspired by Galileo's mission and purpose. Innovation education, project-based learning, youth empowerment, and creating safe, inclusive spaces all speak to the very heart of who you are. You're an experienced, creative, fun-loving leader. You're as comfortable resolving conflict between two campers as you are mentoring your staff or putting your own unique spin on a classic game. You're communicative and trustworthy. As a relationship-builder and mentor, you measure your own success in large part by the success of those around you, and care deeply about helping them meet professional development goals. You're an organized, problem-solving manager. You love fine-tuning operational logistics, ensuring program efficiency, and learning new strategies for driving overall performance. You're ready to grow. You know that true mastery requires commitment, effort, thoughtful feedback, personal reflection, and implementation of lessons learned. Who are we? We think the world needs innovators. We also think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear-the essence of innovation-are happier, more creative and more confident when faced with life's challenges. And we think kids with these skills are more likely to change our world and be the masters of their own. Founded in 2002, Galileo operates summer day camp programs at 70+ locations throughout the Bay Area, SoCal, and Chicago. Our mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world, and we reach this mission through employment of our unique pedagogy, the Galileo Innovation Approach. We're ranked #1 for Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the SF Business Times (and been on the list for ten consecutive years!), and were named one of Forbes' Best Small Companies. Being a Galileo Camp Director means joining an organization that is a model of innovative learning, with a company-wide commitment to inclusion and broadening our impact. Learn more about our financial assistance program and other community efforts. What's the job, really?

You believe that when kids are fearless, they learn and care more deeply. You believe that these fearless innovators will go on to change the world. You're a leader - a servant leader - at heart.

You operate with an all-hands-on-deck mentality and understand that there's no task too small, especially when your impact is so big. You're an adept time manager. Juggling isn't just a party trick-it's your specialty. You know when to switch gears from detail management to supportive mentorship. You're a glass-half-full hard worker. You're committed to quality and are prepared to put in long hours when necessary. You take ownership over your own performance and strive to make Galileo-and yourself-better every day. Who are we? We think the world needs innovators. We also think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear-the essence of innovation-are happier, more creative and more confident when faced with life's challenges. And we think kids with these skills are more likely to change our world and be the masters of their own.

Our Regional Directors (internally referred to as Area Directors) are passionate about working with kids and making an impact. They think innovation is important-so important that it's at the cornerstone of how they lead, motivate, and inspire their staff. They are effective project managers, detail-oriented operations specialists, and visionary entrepreneurs. They care about our culture, our work, our development, and our community efforts. They embody our values of being visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined, and reflective. They are Galileo.
