Youth Recreation Jobs

The secret to UC Berkeley Youth Recreation’s legacy of excellence is our dedicated staff.

We employ hundreds of local teenagers, college students, recent graduates, and adults as instructors, camp counselors, and counselors-in-training each year. They enjoy an inclusive work environment while building work skills and leadership skills that help prepare them for any future career path.

While participants learn from the instructors and year-round employees, our counselors and instructors are learning essential work skills such as communication, conflict resolution, professionalism, teamwork, and leadership — all skills the National Association of Colleges and Employers lists under their top 10 competencies desired by employers.

All positions are posted online to Handshake for college students and Talent Acquisition for all other applicants. If you want to learn more, each position below lists more information and the appropriate posting numbers.
