Three Rivers Village School is looking for one full time staff member for the 2023-2024 school year and beyond! 

TRVS is a full-time day school for students ages 5-18, based on the Sudbury education model. The program is a fully self-governed community operated by direct democracy. We practice radically non-coercive self-directed education with no required curriculum and exclusively student-initiated activities.

This job is great for someone who loves working with kids without mandated testing and ‘classroom management’. There is no degree or certification requirement for this position. Most work hours fall between the regular school hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm, but a willingness to occasionally work additional hours as needed for staff and committee meetings, public relations, family events, etc. is required.

Required Qualifications:

● Commitment to deepening one’s own understanding and knowledge of self-directed learning and self-directed education environments
● Strong self-management skills, including high levels of initiative and ability to authentically and effectively set priorities
● Belief in the natural impulse of children (and adults!) to strive for personal growth, and
commitment to one’s own personal growth
● Reliable, punctual, and safety-conscious
● High levels of professionalism, adaptability, and personal maturity
● Communication and literacy skills, including abilities to express thoughts in writing, tailor communication levels for different age groups and developmental levels, and interact effectively with children and adults from a wide variety of backgrounds
● Be an interested, interesting, engaged, and passionate person
● High level of computer literacy, including familiarity with typical office applications
● Ability to pass required background checks
● General ability to physically participate in the school’s program, including the ability to walk around the school premises regularly and take walks to local businesses and the nature trail.

Compensation is $15/hour plus ~25 paid school holidays and 5 days of PTO per school year, with free tuition for children of full-time staff.
