Santa Barbara School of Squash (SBSOS) is looking for a part-time Academic Director. No squash experience necessary.
SBSOS is year-round sports, education, and mentoring nonprofit program serving committed Santa Barbara youth (5th-12th grade) who qualify for the National School Lunch program. SBSOS pillars include squash/exercise, academic tutoring, community service, enrichment opportunities, and mentoring. We operate after school, on weekends, and during holidays. By using the sport of squash as a motivator, we guide students to realize their academic, athletic and personal potential. Our goal is for each student to graduate from high school prepared for their next step: college or to launch a career. We stay in contact with graduates as they work toward their post-high school goals and offer guidance and support through age 25. We are closely involved with each student on many levels and describe the program as “an inch wide but a mile deep”.
SBSOS Mission Statement – To help students succeed in life through squash, education, and mentoring.
A strong candidate for the Academic Director (AD) position will have a teaching credential and teaching experience, and knowledge of the college application process. They should be able to form a strong bond with the students, motivate them, organize and run a room of students doing homework, communicate with their teachers, have good interpersonal skills, and “fit in” with our organization.
The AD will oversee every academic session…currently 5.5 hours a week during the school year (Mondays 4:00-5:30pm, Tuesday through Friday 4:30-5:30pm), and 6-8 hours a week for 8 weeks during summer (this year was Monday/Tuesday/Thursday 10:30am-12:30pm).
It is expected that the AD will work 50 hours per month during the school year (September through May) and 40 hours per month during summer (June through August). The hours of office time/admin are flexible in both location and time of day.
