This is meaningful, but hard work. What’s in it for me?

All Campus Leaders receive our full benefits package. Additionally, CDs and DCDs receive extensive training and professional development opportunities. All campus leaders also participate in the Citizen Schools national network via trainings, site visits, institutes and organization-wide retreats and meetings.

What do the hours look like on a typical day when working as a Campus Leader for Citizen Schools?

All of our campus leaders work full-time, and should expect to work longer hours during busy times, especially during the WOW! season at the close of each semester.

Please also note that campus leaders are required to attend Summer Institute, which lasts three weeks and begins the first business day after the July 4th holiday. If you are interested in a campus leader role but may have a travel or scheduling conflict with Summer Institute, please reach out to your Talent Acquisition Consultant as soon as possible to discuss your situation.

What is the difference between a Campus Director and Deputy Campus Director?

Campus Directors are the most senior Citizen Schools staff members working at each campus. On some of our larger campuses, we need more support, so Citizen Schools employs Deputy Campus Directors to provide additional support and supervision.
