Seeking Part-time After School Program Staff Members

We are in search of two adult staff members for our  After School Program. We are looking to staff Monday through Friday afternoons from 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm.  These staff positions would be working with our entire After School student population, with a good portion of each day leading a dedicated age group. 


We are currently seeking positions for our Kindergarten and first grade room, as well as our 2nd-3rd Grade room.  We are looking for the following qualities and experience:

  • Experience working with elementary age children.
  • Ability to lead a group of children.
  • Ability to work with and guide our high school staff and high school volunteers.
  • Possess organizational skills in helping to create and handle daily planned activities.
  • Possess a positive approach to dealing with students, parents, and co-workers.

A great perk to this position is that your own LCS school-age kiddos are welcome to attend our ASC Program for free.  If you are interested in applying, please take a few moments to fill out the Before/After School Care Application. If you  have further questions, please contact Esther Ruiz
