Facilitator

Job description

We are looking for part-time facilitators (3-11 hours per week) interested in helping some of the smartest kids on the planet learn the collaborative, problem-solving skills that they will need to unlock the opportunities and solve the challenges their generation will inevitably encounter. The work is, quite simply, life changing, as you watch the kids grow together as a team, and then leap up the learning curve, together.

Our starting compensation is $100/hr with room to grow. We also offer complete scheduling flexibility, and we need facilitators in all time zones. Interested?


Job requirements

We believe students learn best through action, careful observation, and thoughtful conversations. Our facilitators are comfortable stepping back and allowing the students to help each other make sense of a problem and experiment with their own solutions. A successful facilitator asks open-ended questions to encourage student participation and critical thinking. Key to our program is fostering a space where students feel empowered to take risks and learn through experimentation. 


Facilitators receive extensive training on utilizing virtual learning tools and the software platforms created by Synthesis. If you believe in our philosophy of education, we encourage you to apply. In-depth technical knowledge is not a prerequisite. 


Expectations

  • Facilitate discussions about both the game play and the collaboration amongst the students. 
  • Foster a dynamic and constructive environment that encourages every student to share their voice.
  • Communicate effectively with families about the progress of each student.
  • Participate in company meetings and share your ideas about how we can improve.
