Mission Thrive Crew Leaders
Mission Thrive Summer is a five week summer employment program for 10th, 11th and 12th grade
Baltimore City public school students. Mission Thrive keeps teens engaged, learning, active, and healthy throughout the summer. Crew Leaders must be fully invested in the program for the five weeks (in addition to two weeks of training prior and one week of wrap up after) and possess an enthusiasm for working with teens. While our program focuses on nutrition, cooking skills, agriculture, fitness/yoga and mindfulness, we do not require that Crew Leaders are experts in all, only that candidates are open to learning and engaging along with the participants.
This is an AmeriCorps position. Crew Leaders are expected to serve 40 hours per week from June 9–August 9. The AmeriCorps member will complete a 300 hour term over the course of the summer
serving Baltimore’s communities. In return, the AmeriCorps member will receive a stipend of
$125/biweekly and an education award of roughly $1,100 that can be used for college, trade school, or to repay qualified student loans after completing 300 hours of service.
