4-H Before & After School Program Employment

Love working with kids? Looking for flexible, part time hours and a competitive wage? Working with our 4-H Before & After School program might be what you are looking for! 

Worried about having to teach topics you don't know much about? Push those worries aside! Our educators teach from a scheduled lesson plan using 4-H curriculum. These 4-H lesson plans provide extremely clear instructions on how to engage with students for the topic being taught, and the 4-H curriculum utilizes hands-on, experiential learning so kids can "learn while doing". Additionally, our educator teams and site directors work as a team to help each other out should any questions arise. Many of our educators have never formally taught any type of lesson prior to working with us and are very successful in their roles as they provide these learning opportunities to the students in our program. 

The 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) 4-H Before and After School Program

Cornell Cooperative Extension of St. Lawrence County has been awarded the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) grant to provide enrichment programming to students in grades K-12 at Edwards-Knox Central School, Colton-Pierrepont Central School, Hermon-Dekalb Central School, and Parishville-Hopkinton Central School! This programming will be before and after school to provide homework help, a snack, and enrichment activities such as cooking, STEM, healthy living, and much more.

The 4-H Before & After School Programs are managed by Cornell Cooperative Extension of St. Lawrence County and licensed by the St. Lawrence County Child Care Council. Each program will operate Monday-Friday on days where school is in session. 


To bring the 21st CCLC enrichment programming to these schools, CCE needs staff! To apply, please visit: Before & After School Educator Application


Educators will work an average of 17.5 hours per week. Exact hours vary based on location. Programming is offered Monday-Friday on the dates that the school is in session. Hours of programming are 7AM until the start of home room before school and from school dismissal until 5PM after school. Educators need to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of program and should expect to work 30 minutes past the end of program for clean up and preparation for the following day of program. We offer paid training, CPR and First Aid classes, competitive wages, and flexible hours. Educator positions require little-to-no preparation for activities. All lessons and curriculum are provided for educators so they can focus on the most important thing -- creating a fun, safe, enriching environment for the students!
