CHILD COACH  – EXPERIENCE LEADER ROLE DESCRIPTION:

Child Coaches – Experience Leaders are the guides, facilitators, and planners for groups of 4 to 10 highly creative and talented children from around the world.  They are masters in asking questions, stimulating the curiosity and the need to discover in every child.  A Child Coach-Experience Leader`s primary role is to guide our children so they can develop into confident, self-directive and passionate individuals.  You will wear many hats, from the planner and executor of the local child event to the coach that has to sheer up its team.   At times this role takes the endurance of a sports person, and that should excite you.

For this round of Child Coaches-Experience Leaders, UnsameLife is seeking candidates who bring multiple years of experience guiding and coaching children in an out-of-the school environment with a clear focus on the following 9 soft skills:

  • Communication
