EDGEucators Wanted for Summer 2019

We are excited to announce that, in partnership with Argus, the White Plains Public Library will be hosting its third annual Summer of Making for teens in the Edge this year. To facilitate this wonderful summer-long series of creative and maker-focused mini-camps, we are looking to hire two “EDGEucators.”

EDGEucators will:

  • Collaborate to develop week-long workshops throughout July and August
  • Promote the program to youth in the White Plains area, and
  • Teach teenagers a combination of new technology skills, engineering, science and art

EDGEucators will earn $15 per hour. They will work 16 hours per week facilitating programs in the morning for seven weeks, plus additional planning time.

Ideal candidates will possess:

  • Experience with emerging technologies (i.e., Virtual Reality, Robotics, 3D Design, Coding, Audio/Video Editing, etc.), and/or
  • Interest in creativity, DIY, arts and science projects, and making things, and
  • A passion for educating and the ability to engage effectively with teenagers, and
  • Excellent leadership, communication, and presentation skills
  • Spanish speaking is a plus
