Every Student. Every School. Every Day. DONATE!

Welcome to Our SummerWorks Portal

Thank you for your interest in working with us this summer!

Each summer we serve hundreds of students at each of our multiple campuses across Pasadena. The success of this program is due in part to the wonderful, dedicated staff we work with each summer. Every staff person plays a critical role in the program, and we expect that you will provide a safe, fun, engaging, and high-quality experience for the students.

We are proud to offer a high-quality, low-cost option for summer learning in our community. This summer marks our 15th year, and we have made many great changes to meet the needs we heard from the community. The program this year is offered from June 11 – July 12. There are new hours, with pre-care starting at 8:00 am, and the main program running from 9:00 am – 1:15 pm. Interested applicants should have prior experience in the role they are applying, and value the role of education in a young person’s life.

We look forward to receiving your application.
