YOUTH SERVE
Summer Camp Counselor


Opportunity: YouthServe is a youth leadership development nonprofit dedicated to our mission of empowering youth leadership through civic engagement, community service and philanthropy. One of the ways we execute this mission is through summer camp programming!  This summer we will be hosting 2 sessions of our annual Urban Service Camp programming. Urban Service Camp is an immersive experience designed to connect youth to the Birmingham community through service. Unlike many summer camps that are self-enriching in nature, youth ages 13 – 18 will serve alongside one another while learning about the history of Birmingham, the needs of the community and how the work of our service partners is addressing those needs.

 

Our camp is structured as a week-long overnight camp. This summer’s dates are as follows, Session I: June 20-24 and Urban Service Day Camp Session II: July 18-22. This summer we have decided to focus on the idea of community impact throughout our programming. Through this, we are seeking to educate our youth on community impact and the organizations that are having such an amazing effect on their community.

YouthServe is seeking wonderful counselors to facilitate and lead our youth through this experience! Applicants must be two years removed from High School and to lead and embody the mission of YouthServe at camp. This role is extremely important as our counselors are truly the arbitrators of each camper's experience.

We are also seeking those that have experience working with youth in a variety of settings. The skills needed to be a USC counselor include: the ability to sensitively serve with diverse populations of youth, respect for different opinions, and the ability to discuss sensitive topics with youth that may have a different belief than your own, among other things. It’s important that counselors are able to perform roles with direct and indirect supervision.

This commitment means each individual agrees to work Urban Service Camp for two weeks, plus 2 training days. Two week long, overnight camps are physically and mentally demanding, counselors must be able to meet this challenge. Counselors will gain experience in leading youth, while learning about the impact service is having on the Greater Birmingham community. Former counselors have gained internships, jobs, and recommendations through this position.

All applicants must be able to commit to these dates:
- USC Counselor Training: June 8th & 9th
- Urban Service Camp Sessions I & II: Session I: June 20th - 24th Session II: July 18th - July 22nd.
- Arrive Monday Morning 7:00 AM and leave on Friday at 1:00 PM
