– Cultivate an inclusive learning environment by delivering culturally relevant content that presents multiple perspectives and connects to students’ background.

– Create and lead differentiated programming, including 2-3 evening programs a week, that honor the needs and backgrounds of each group of participants.

– Manage students’ physical safety in outdoor settings using sound judgment and applying appropriate risk management decisions.

– Work to support an inclusive workplace community by establishing and maintaining respectful, supportive, and compassionate relationships with staff and participants.
