Job Description:

Acton Academy, Austin, Texas is hiring! Do you want to change the world? Do you crave working hard with a small, mission-driven, world-class team of entrepreneurs changing the vision of school? POSITION: Apprentice Guide with quick potential for growth and leadership START DATE: February 18, 2020 (flexible) If your passion is to fuel the love of learning in others while advancing your own personal and professional growth, this is your chance to get in on the ground floor of one of the worlds most innovative schools. Acton Academy, founded in 2009, is a private micro-school and learner-driven community with the mission that each person who enters its doors will find a calling and change the world. We combine elements of the Montessori method with Socratic guiding, hands-on experiential quests and interactive technology. Underlying our method is an application of the Hero's Journey, creating a lively learning environment that feels more like an adventure than school. At Acton, we have mixed-aged classrooms called studios with a self-paced learning design as opposed to grade-levels. Our real world-oriented quests culminate in a public exhibition of learning as opposed to test scores and report cards. In all areas of Acton life, young people are empowered to be in the drivers seat of their learning. We are seeking an Apprentice Guide to work with our Eagles. Our Guide has the opportunity to grow quickly into a Lead Guide and ultimately open his or her own Acton Academy - or take on a leadership role on our Austin campus. We are looking for a smart, entrepreneurial individual who is passionate about guiding young people on their independent journey of lifelong learning, and who possesses an understanding of the Hero's Journey and the Socratic Method. Our Guide will learn to lead Socratic discussions and how to work with the Acton Academy learning design, processes and systems. Our Guide will equip our Eagles to explore and take ownership of their learning, monitor progress on curriculum, and create life-oriented projects that nurture curiosity. JOB TYPE: The position could either be full-time, or more flexible, where you only work a few hours a day guiding, and we provide a setting where the rest of the time you work on another project on campus. PREFERRED EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS: Experience managing mixed aged groups of young people; experience planning and implementing games or projects; experience with coaching or mentoring and systematizing processes a plus; a passion for disruptive education opportunities; deeply curious and ready to learn and work hard; agile with online learning; excellent writing and interpersonal communication skills; entrepreneurial thinker; reader; deep heart for young people and a trust and respect for their ability to learn and grow without heavy adult intervention; kind-hearted and tough-minded; independent worker; calm demeanor and secure in being on a Hero's Journey. SALARY: Our Guides receive competitive pay, commensurate with experience. FIRST STEP: Sound exciting?

If it appears like a great fit, please begin the process of applying on this website: http://www.actonguide.com.
