Now Accepting Applications for our Summer 2017 Positions

What is the Junior Staff Program?

The Junior Staff program is a mentoring program for youth entering 6th-8th grade. The Junior Staff will meet with the Junior Staff Coordinator to help with Club programming throughout the summer. The Junior Staff will be asked to spend at least 3 afternoons at the Club from 12pm- 4pm during the Summer Program. The Junior Staff will shadow a variety of Club staff, plan and carry out a variety of program and participate in specific Junior Staff programs such as Career Launch, Money Matters, My.Future and have fun hanging out at the Club with other middle school members.

What kind of work will Junior Staff be doing?

Junior Staff members will be helping BGC staff with programming including planning, setting up, participating, assisting, leading and clean-up. Junior staff will be positive role models for our Club members and will participate in a variety of activities specific for Junior Staff but also for our regular Club program. Junior Staff will also have free time opportunities with their fellow middle school Club members but this is not a “hang out” program for teens.

Will I be paid for the work I’m doing? Is there a cost for Junior Staff?

Junior Staff positions are volunteer positions. The goal of the Junior Staff program is to develop good employment skills for your future including communication, working with youth, goal-setting and more. The Junior Staff will earn “Club Bucks” to purchase a variety of things including shirts, field trips, incentives and more.

There is a one-time $20 membership fee for Junior Staff.

What do I need to do to be considered?

Junior Staff positions are chosen through an application process. In order to be considered, you must submit a Junior Staff application. Applications are due by Friday, May 19th. Interviews will be conducted the week of May 30th.
