Instructors Needed for Kids in College – Summer Youth Camp

Do you have a passion that you would love to share with students this summer? Iowa Valley is looking for instructors that will teach a session in the Kids in College summer camp. The first camp slated for June 14-18. Instructors could choose to teach one or two sessions: the first session will run from 8:30 am – 10:00 am, and the second session will run 10:15 am – 11:45 am. There will be a second session, held August 2-4. Instructors will teach one course for the entire time period, from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm.

Session topics could include anything from cookie decorating, Harry Potter, STEM topics, floral arrangements, play-acting, or other hobbies that instructors are willing to share. Interested in teaching, but don’t have a topic in mind? We can help you select a topic. The sessions should be designed for students entering grades 4 – 8. Class topics can vary by grade. Instructors will receive a small stipend for their time and materials.

Who can be a Kids in College instructor? Anyone with a hobby or interest to share can teach a class, but the people who benefit the most are teachers, college instructors, and college students looking to major in education. The goal of the week-long camp is to introduce kids to college life while giving them the opportunity to explore an interest or learn a new hobby.
