What is an Operations Coordinator? Operations Coordinators (OCs) are part of our Institute Operations Team, which is a group of ops-minded staff responsible for the design, set up, and execution of all institute logistics. This team provides the infrastructure needed to deliver outstanding instruction to ~5,000 summer school students whom our corps members in-training teach. While OCs aren’t in the classroom, their work has a direct impact on the quality of our institute and corps members’ training experience. We accept over 200 undergraduate students to our OC staff in the summer.

The following information concerning an opportunity for Native youth was provided in an October 3, 2013 email from Erin Bailey, Director of the Aspen Institute's Center for Native American Youth.
"The AnBryce Foundation funds youth camps in the DC area, and offers Saturday youth programs. Rachelle, Director of Summer Residency Programs at the AnBryce Foundation, is working to identify Native American students who wish to attend their summer camp and may be interested in Camp Dogwood’s annual camp, which takes place in McLean, Virginia for youth in grades 2 through 9 . They generously offer full scholarships to Native American students to attend Camp Dogwood. Many Native students have attended over the years and they are looking to develop some relationships with on-the-ground programs in Indian Country. It is an incredible opportunity with the foundation paying for all travel, camp, and educational programming expenses for Native American youth."
