Residential Life Position
Founded in 1978 in Putney, VT, Greenwood School is the premier school for young men, grades 6 through 12, who have learning, attention and executive function challenges. Greenwood leverages its small size to deliver innovative research-based programs that empower students with the knowledge, talents, life skills and confidence they need for success, both socially and academically. At Greenwood students discover their unique strengths in a setting where quality education and character development are nurtured by a highly-supportive faculty who go beyond what is expected and deliver excellence, through experiential activities that put learning into a relevant context.
Greenwood seeks an enthusiastic, reliable weekend team leader to serve on its weekend staff. Weekends at Greenwood are a time when students engage in activities that highlight our rural setting as well as providing opportunities for students to travel to cultural events in nearby cities. Weekend trips may include skiing at Okemo Mountain, climbing at a local crag, or attending a sports game in nearby cities. In addition, smaller trips are taken to local theaters, museums or students may enjoy remaining on campus and exploring our art studio, wood shop, and 100 acre woodlot.

A weekend team leader will be on duty every weekend, excluding school vacations, with the understanding that every third weekend, the team leader will be in charge of overseeing all events and programming of the weekend and working directly with the weekend staff.
