Montana Academy seeks Team Leaders for our boys and girls dorm on our Marion Campus.
The role of Team Leader is a very demanding position as it relates closely to a parenting role. A clear and secure understanding of “Self” is a necessity in this work. The ability to maintain clear and appropriate boundaries and recognize students accurately within the context of a warm relationship with appropriate limits is critical to success as a Team Leader. Thus, there is a need for all Team Leaders to work collaboratively and with minimal defensiveness. Staff must routinely assist each other in keeping clear boundaries and an appropriate balance of closeness and objective distance in the staff-student relationship.
Team Leaders are in charge of creating and implementing safe and enriching activities to all Montana Academy students. They are required to lead and participate in backpacking, hiking, biking, skiing as well as other sports related activities.
We require a background of working with youth and/or a bachelor’s degree in a related field.
Shifts are 4 days a week. Sunday – Wednesday or Wednesday – Saturday. Shifts are evenings and all day on the weekend days.
