Do you love working with children and enjoy the outdoors? You may love working at Mount Hermon!
Experiential Educators facilitate educational outdoor science field trips for elementary aged students and lead a cohort of kids at our After School Adventures program all at our beautiful redwood camp facility. All our work uses God's creation and outdoor activity to encourage students to consider their relationship with God, friends and loved ones. You can expect to work 5 days per week alongside other like minded individuals and to be a part of a team that is passionate about sharing the love of Jesus with students. On a given day, you may teach a group of students about the local riparian ecosystem, facilitate our roped tree climbing activity, or participate in a game of hide and seek in the redwood forest. No two days are ever the same! Experiential Educators assume responsibility for a group of students ranging from 1st to 8th grade while teaching science content and leading activities in the outdoors through MHA’s Outdoor Science School and After-School Adventure Program in a manner consistent with MHA’s mission, vision and values.
The Experiential Educator is a Ministerial position. Ministerial staff render their work, stewardship, relationships and behavior as evidence of being followers of Jesus Christ while embracing and affirming Mount Hermon Association, Inc.’s (“MHA”) Christian mission, vision, beliefs and standards of conduct. They are responsible for defining, cultivating and leading MHA’s Christian community, conference programs, and retreats. All staff join into our community life of prayer, worship and spiritual activity, including but not limited to staff meetings, attendance at programs, Bible Study, and staff gatherings.
