This is a dynamic position that requires the Activities Assistant Coordinator to create, produce, and lead fun activities and excursions for our students. These activities could include leading and organizing intramural sports, museum outings, baseball games, on-campus movie nights, university tours, board game nights, and more. Candidates need to possess positive energy and a strong aptitude for creativity. The position requires great flexibility and entails wearing many hats including those of event coordinator, role model, and counselor. The Activities Assistant Coordinator may also be asked to help with host family recruiting and receptionist work.
