Visiting Programs Coordinator

BAHAMAS / The Island School

We seek educators with a demonstrated career commitment to experiential education and a love for teaching and learning. Visiting Program Coordinators have a dual role in supporting and leading educational programming for our short course program and our 45-day residential Summer Term.

Short course programs offer students the ability to step outside of their comfort zones and become immersed in our diverse island community. During our short course programs, Program Coordinators will coordinate with chaperones, organize and plan a tailored trip experience and then deliver programming when students arrive. Primary responsibilities include delivering outdoor education programs for middle school, high school, and collegiate students at the Cape Eleuthera Island School.

During the Summer Term, the primary responsibility of the Program Coordinator is to support students in a residential setting. Program Coordinators will pivot to become lead teachers and deliver thoughtful, interdisciplinary coursework in their area of expertise. In addition, faculty are fully immersed in the daily operation of the school; from early morning exercise, to classes, to off-campus expeditions and weekend activities. Our teachers pursue opportunities to guide students in making connections between coursework and life in the community, with the goal of solving real problems and creating new understandings. This includes advising a group of students, engaging in the morning exercise program, doing chores alongside students, leading student activities, and other duties associated with running a residential program in a remote setting. Additionally, teachers lead or assist kayak expeditions, assist with SCUBA or boat driving, contribute to our community outreach program, and support a medical response team in a wilderness setting.

This position requires the ability to work long hours with a close-knit group of peers and live in an isolated community. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to get valuable experience in organizing and delivering experiential learning programs.
