Employment Opportunity: Afterschool Program Instructor

Amazing things happen after school in Wolfville!

Are you the kind of person who is able to turn a neighbourhood walk into a “choose your own adventure” saga? Do household items inspire you to build a fort? Can you listen to stories about a child’s day in a way that makes that kiddo feel like they truly matter? Are you great at helping young people trust that they can bring their own unique skills to be part of a team? If any or all of these qualities sound like you and you are looking for part-time work, this might be just what you're looking for!

For kids in Grades Primary to 5, the hours between the end of the school day and the start of an evening spent with family can be the best part of the day for having fun and making memories because in Wolfville, afterschool rocks!
