Current Opportunities

Pikes Peak Prep

Pikes Peak Prep is looking for 5 upper-level Math Tutors (maybe even steady people) to help our Algebra 1 through Calculus 1 classes. We usually have over 3 different courses in a classroom at one time because many of the students are in an "independent study" based on their level of proficiency. This makes it very difficult for everyone to get the appropriate attention from the teacher. Thus, if you like math and feel comfortable tutoring a wide range of students we need your help!

Times needed: 1:00-2:30, M-F

Location: 

Pikes Peak Prep High School Math Room
525 E Costilla St
Colorado Springs CO 80903

The Pioneer Museum

The Pioneer Museum is looking for interns to assist with facilitating, updating, and developing new educational programs for the museum under the supervision and guidance of the Program Coordinator. They will work primarily with our Hands on History cart program. The Hands on History Cart Program allows visitors, primarily 2nd through 5th graders, to explore specific themes in local history. Each cart features a combination of Museum Use collection objects with associated hands-on activities. At carts located in or adjacent to the museum’s exhibits, visitors can examine x-rays of lungs afflicted with tuberculosis, imagine life as an explorer or pioneer, mimic a heartbeat on a ceremonial buffalo skin drum, compare cameras today with those of 100 years ago, and more!

Interns must make a 4 to 8 month commitment, starting no later than September 30, 2014. The museum can work with each intern’s availability, but we ask for a commitment of 12-20 hours between Tuesday and Saturday of each week (3-5 shifts):

Weekday Schedule: 12:45 – 4:45 p.m.
Optional Saturday Schedule: 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (flexible)
