Assistant Instructor

Website Girls at Work, Inc

Girls at Work, Inc. empowers girls with power tools.

Calling all Changemakers!

Girls at Work, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit located in Manchester, NH, is expanding and we are looking to add Assistant Instructors to our team! Our woodworking programs empower girls through building. However, you don’t need experience in woodworking to apply. If you love the idea of empowering girls, raising the bar of low expectations for them from society, challenging students to think critically, and have the desire to be a part of an awesome, supportive staff, we’d love to meet you!

We pride ourselves in having built a powerful environment that encourages girls to believe in themselves, even on their most difficult days. Our Socratic approach to building enables us to train interested individuals – even those who are not woodworkers – on how to teach in our workshops. Our goal is to teach the girls to use power tools safely while encouraging them to think critically about how each project is built. The experience of building with power tools elevates self-confidence and self-esteem which leads to a new narrative for our girls, one of strength and courage. It’s an awesome experience for both the girls and instructors.

Job Title: Assistant Instructor (both woodworking and STEM instructor positions available)

Job Type: Part Time (but close to 40 hours per week during Summer Camp!)

Hourly Rate: $15/hr

What you’ll gain from this experience

  • Discover and embolden your own voice as you help girls do the same
  • A sense of purpose and belonging on an open and receptive team making a huge difference in the community and impacting the next generation of leaders.
  • Experience working in a dynamic, collaborative nonprofit office environment. Your voice will matter here.
  • Professional development in areas such as giving and receiving effective feedback, youth behavior management techniques, and communication skills.
  • Have fun with power tools!

You would make a great Assistant Instructor if you:

  • Are open to learning
  • Have a high level of patience
  • Are willing to accept and give feedback from/to the rest of the team
  • Understand the importance of your role in the lives of girls and believe in them wholeheartedly
  • Are flexible and open to coaching
  • Have a positive attitude

If this sounds like the opportunity you’ve been searching for and if you’re ready to make a difference in the lives of young girls, please send a cover letter and resume to

We are excited to hear from you!
