We're seeking a part-time employee to help run our youth program in St. Paul during daytime hours. You will work primarily with Somali-American and/or African-American youth in a classroom setting. You will work with another staff member and will have some interaction with other adults. The programs are held every other week from 8 AM to 1:45 PM, with occasional field trips/events on some weekends.

This is an excellent opportunity to mentor youth (ages 6+) and gain valuable youth-development experience. You will also expand your skills in teaching and leading youth, as well as strengthening your community development skills. Training will be provided. The job can be tailored as an internship if you need it.

Responsibilities include organizing and delivering programs based on a modular curriculum. Enjoy the flexibility of creating an experience that excites kids, engages parents, and opens new doors. Some kids today face an opportunity gap that has contributed to an achievement gap. The right person can use this job and our program's non-formal, hands-on education method to help narrow these gaps and make a difference in the lives of youth.

Compensation is based on delivering program one day every other week, with paid time allowed for you to prepare the program. The number of hours worked depends on your schedule and interest. You can work just ten hours per week if that's all you can do, or you can work up to 20 hours per week by working with additional groups. If your schedule changes, we will do our best to accommodate you.

Compensation starts at $14; reimbursement for approved business mileage is provided.

Benefits include training, leadership development, skills development, paid sick and safe time, free parking, great co-workers, and the satisfaction of making a difference in the life of a child.
