Kitchen Coordinator – Educo Adventure School (Canada)

Position: Kitchen Coordinator – Educo Adventure School

Location: 100 Mile House, Canada

Application Deadline: May 11th, 2018

Program Season: End of May – End of September

Report to: Program Director – Educo Adventure School

THE ROLE:

Educo Adventure School is looking for an experienced & hard working Kitchen Coordinator for all food and nutrition related systems.

THE EDUCO APPROACH:

Educo Adventure School aims to be more than just an outdoor classroom: we seek to create meaningful experiences that draw forth our students’ emotional, social and spiritual development. We believe this is fostered through deepening connections with the natural world, embracing challenge and learning the intricacies of intimate teamwork! We learn experientially – hands-on! Educo offers opportunity for young people to disconnect from the digital and online arenas and to cultivate a sense of belonging in the world as they journey through the mountains, forests, lakes and rivers. Educo program staff facilitate opportunities for youth to become powerfully self-aware and engaged with the people, communities and nature surrounding them.

THE EDUCO CULTURE:

Educo Adventure School has a rich history in youth work and community living. In a loving and supportive environment, we encourage each other to step beyond our preconceived limitations and to express ourselves fully and creatively. As a staff team, we work hard (and play harder), we work collaboratively and we value one another’s contributions. We ask of our staff what we ask of our students: a willingness to step beyond our comfort zone and to practice vulnerability and appreciation. If you prefer efficiency to collaboration, dislike ambiguity, and adhere to a very strict schedule, then leading Educo Adventure School probably isn’t right for you. If you’re looking for a fun, multifaceted and rewarding work environment that will push you every single day, then we want to hear from you!

DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES:

The Kitchen Coordinator will work both independently and collaboratively with volunteers at times to prepare and serve delicious and nutritious meals for students and staff. With supervision and support from the Program Manager, responsibilities will include:

  • Meal Planning: Plan nutritious and hearty meals, snacks and beverages for students and staff during courses and course prep days. Plan alternatives for students and staff with dietary restrictions and allergies.
  • Food Preparation & Cooking: Prepare ingredients and cook meals for groups ranging in size from 12 people to 75 people in an off-the-grid kitchen.
  • Resource Management: Track inventory of ingredients, kitchen supplies (cleaning and dishwashing supplies, utensils, etc) and site supplies (toilet paper, soap, etc). File timely orders with grocery supply company to replenish stock on a regular basis.
  • Budget Management: Monitor food and site supply budget and make purchases within budget boundaries.
  • Relationship Management: Communicate positively with vendors, local community partners, health authority inspectors, students and adult stakeholders (parents/guardians & teachers) about food arrangements, their nourishment needs and our nourishment capabilities.
  • Leadership: Direct, supervise and mentor “Home Team” members (staff and volunteers who are off-program) when they are assisting in the kitchen. Act as Incident Commander in an emergency when the Program Manager and Executive Director are both off-site.
  • Reporting: In coordination with the Program Manager, confirm actual numbers of students & teachers/parents/guardians attending the course and the number of dietary adjustment charges. Communicate these numbers to the office for final invoicing in a timely manner.

Required Certifications & Experience:

  • Food Safe Level 1
  • 2+ years’ experience in inventory, grocery ordering and budget management
  • 1+ year cooking experience
  • Preferred: OFA level 3

PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS:

  • You love working with people. You are open and attentive to all individuals, internal or external to the organization. You are able to appreciate individuals for their diversity and uniqueness.
  • You love a challenge. You meet the diversity of the daily tasks with a smile: encouraging tired kids, managing disclosures, loading the canoe trailer and bringing positivity to staff meetings at 6:30am on a cold spring morning. You take initiative for your learning where you don’t know how to do something.
  • You communicate clearly. You appreciate nuanced language that is inspirational and honest. You communicate in a way that empowers the people with whom you work.
  • You are creative. You tailor your mentorship approach to the needs of each staff member or student. You use ingenuity and innovation to be adaptive when plans change and to solve problems and make progress.
  • You value self-care. You practice stress reduction techniques (meditation, forest walks, exercise, etc). You can laugh at yourself and zany situations. You have the humility to ask for help when you need it.
  • You live outside the box. You embrace the realm beyond your comfort zone and you believe in inviting others to do the same.

CONDITIONS FOR EMPLOYMENT:

  • Program staff live on our beautiful remote base camp, 20km west of 100 Mile House in the Cariboo region.
  • Accommodation and food provided when onsite.
  • Opportunity to work internationally through the JUMP! Foundation
