How many people does it take to run a summer program? For us, the answer is: hundreds! Between the instructors, teaching assistants, campus partners, and our summer staff, there are so many people involved in making Summer Youth Programs a success each year.
The first phase of our hiring process just started yesterday. We had an information session for Michigan Tech students who either worked for us in the past or attended SYP when they were younger. Returning staff bring so much knowledge to the crew: they have faced challenges, seen the highlights, and lived the mission. People who attended the camps also have a unique perspective – often, they let us know that they remember the impact their counselors had on them. Now, it’s their turn.
Michigan Tech students who are interested in working for us should visit the hiring page of our website for more information. Another general information session for people new to the wonderful world of SYP will be coming up in January as well.
If you’re like us and are already excited for SYP 2019, you can go ahead and request a catalog. That way, you will be among the first to receive the 2019 listings when they print. If you have any questions, you can always find us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 906-487-2219.
