Employment Opportunities

Teaching Positions

Courses at LightHouse are taught in 8-week blocks.  Classes meet twice per week for 90 minutes, Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday.  Class times are 9:00-10:25, 10:30-12:00, and 1:00-2:30.

Some courses are taught by core staff directors, some by volunteers and college work-study students, and some by paid teachers.

Most classes are relevant to one or more of our Pathways: Entrepreneurship, Creative Arts, Tech, and College Prep.

If you would like to offer a course, we accept proposals on a rolling basis.

Lunch

LightHouse would like to provide lunch to all students four days per week.  Our ideal vision is that lunch prep be a class for 5 or 6 students to work with a local chef to prepare a meal that we will then all eat together.

Preparation will happen between 10:30 and noon, and we will eat together and clean up between noon and 1:00.

We are in the conversation with local chefs and kitchens to develop this possibility, and looking for more.

If you are interested in being part of providing fresh, healthy meals to our community, either as a cook, teacher, or visionary, please be in touch: contact@lighthouseholyoke.org

Community Partners

LightHouse will spend Fridays off-site engaging in community work, service learning, and other enrichment activities.

Our goal is to partner with one organization per block or per year in order to give us time to build a meaningful relationship and to offer useful assistance.  LightHouse teens and staff will work on projects that are of use to our partner organization, and learn about the important work that the organization is doing.

If you are interested in becoming a community partner or in being part of the vision team for this aspect of the program, please be in touch: contact@lighthouseholyoke.org
