KASPER is looking for a qualified independent contractor to implement and oversee our summer youth program that honors our mission to create an organized, educational and fun experience in a safe environment.

The Program Director will work under the supervision of the KASPER Board. The program will be held on the Kalmiopsis School District campus. The program is tentatively planned to operate Mon-Fri from 7:30am - 12:30pm plus additional prep hours to be determined at contractor's discretion up to a pre-approved contracted amount. 

The Director is responsible for creating and implementing curriculum that includes skill building and enrichment activities such as art, music, gardening/nature, hobbies, world cultures, languages, and science (STEM fun), as well as recreational activities such as interactive group games, sports, dance, or other physical activities appropriate for youth in grades 1-5. Supplies and curriculum support from 4-H is available. The Director will work with the KASPER Board to establish a theme for the summer. This position allows for creativity and activity flexibility within this criteria.

At the conclusion of the program session, the Director will provide a written review with daily/weekly statistics and recommended improvements. The Director will incorporate the requirements affiliated with our 4-H Afterschool Partnership.
