Horizons at Dedham Country Day School (DCD) is an award-winning program that helps build brighter futures for low-income children in the Greater Boston area. Modeled after the national Horizons Student Enrichment Program, Horizons' intensive six-week summer program is designed to prevent summer decline in academic performance and close the opportunity and achievement gaps.
Working in partnership with Horizons families, Dedham and Boston public schools, and the host school, Horizons at DCD is committed to developing the whole child and offers activities that promote higher-level thinking, development of leadership skills, and encourage self-efficacy all while raising student aspirations and expectations for their lives. This is an opportunity for a motivated, committed individual who is passionate about making a difference and receiving higher than entry-level responsibilities. The candidate should have some background of volunteer service as well as the desire to take on responsibilities that will both challenge them and make an impact on the Greater Boston community.
