Job Description

Treasure Island Job Corp Center is a federally-funded residential vocational training facility serving roughly 500 youth from around the Bay Area. Our mission is to provide career-based technical and academic training and job placement assistance to low-income youth ages 16-24. The Academic Department of Treasure Island Job Corps consists of a motivated team of instructors and administrators who thrive on student success. We offer Adult Basic Education classes in Literacy and Numeracy and provide multiple avenues for students to achieve their high school diploma and/or GED. We take our success very seriously because our success equates to newfound opportunities for our students. Our students come to our program with a conscious desire to better their lives; it is our duty to provide education and services to shape that desire into reality.

THE WORK ENVIRONMENT
Treasure Island Job Corps is run by an employee-owned company that contracts with the Federal Government to operate numerous Job Corps Centers around the country. We are a highly performance-based organization with very clear responsibilities, expectations, and support. Because we are funded by a single government entity, we are highly accountable to them. We invest in our people, we measure and reward achievements, but we are in the business of helping young people in need of professional training and job placement assistance.

PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES
The Academic Instructor will be charged with the Online High School Diploma program. This is by no means a typical classroom setting. Each student has an individual curriculum they must complete online. Although this is an online program, they are scheduled into a classroom to receive proper support from the instructor. They typically work independently and only ask for instructional support for assignments or topics they cannot decipher on their own. Assignments are graded by the instructor but all exams and finals are automatically graded by the online program. Organization, planning, and motivation of students are key to this position as responsibilities will include: submitting proper documentation for transcript evaluation, grading assignments submitted online, maintaining physical folders for each student, submitting weekly progress reports, motivating students to progress through course material, providing academic support for students, and early-identification of lack of progress.

 

Job Requirements

1. Highly capable in motivating students to progress through an online high school diploma curriculum.
2. Able to provide academic support in a variety of subjects (including Math and Science)
3. Energetic, optimistic, and motivated by student success.
4. Organized and able to maintain progress reports on a weekly basis.
5. Strong classroom management skills
6. Good technical skills. The position requires some administrative skills so above average computer literacy is needed. (Strong Excel skills are a plus)
7. Enjoy the idea of working for a non-profit, but are also motivated to work in a performance-driven environment
8. Interested in career growth and willing to go above and beyond to really show off your skills
9. Teaching Credential Required
10. Bachelor's Degree Required
11. Master's Degree Preferred
12. Previous Job Corps and Teaching experience preferred.
