How Afterschool Teachers Are Made

Our Afterschool Teachers are about to embark on the journey of a lifetime! This semester, Side by Side Kids will serve more students than ever before. Our team will encourage hearts and inspire minds at SIX different elementary schools! But how can we be sure our teachers are ready to develop the servant leaders and heroes of tomorrow? By training them, of course!

Side by Side Kids Afterschool Teachers receive 16 hours of paid training at the beginning of every semester. Through extensive research on best practices, our leadership team equips Afterschool Teachers to offer high-quality programming to SBSK students. We explore the following topics in detail:

In addition to these 16 hours of training, SBSK Afterschool Teachers attend weekly professional development sessions on their campuses. As a whole organization, we meet together every few months for Mid-Semester Training.

Our number one priority at Side by Side Kids is to create a safe environment for the kids we serve. Because of our emphasis on safety, we are able to also facilitate academic productivity, spiritual growth, and FUN at each of our campuses!

Guess what? It’s not too late to #JoinOurCrew! We’ll give you all the tools you need to be successful in the classroom, you just need to bring your love for Jesus and your passion for His children! Visit our jobs page for more information.
