ABOUT US:

Jays Care Foundation, the charitable arm of the Toronto Blue Jays, uses the power of baseball to create positive social change in communities across Canada. We are currently looking for passionate and dedicated staff to deliver our RBI programs in Toronto.

Our RBI programs (https://www.mlb.com/bluejays/community/jays-care/rbi) include:

RBI Spring (April to June) – an inclusive baseball/softball program implemented in partnership with schools to remove any barriers that students may face getting into the game. Beginning in April, the program runs afterschool for 10 weeks for students in grades 4-8 to participate in weekly practices and organized games.

RBI Summer Edition (July to August) – an initiative that offers daily programming in July and August for over 2800 youth attending Toronto District School Board (TDSB) Elementary Summer School.

Successful Summer Edition applicants will have experience leading recreational programs and working with children. The role begins in June with a robust onboarding and training schedule, days and time TBD.

*Please note: There is no overlap between RBI Spring and RBI Summer Edition; if interested, candidates are encouraged to apply for positions within both programs. Based on performance, successful RBI Spring staff will have the opportunity and be encouraged to continue working for RBI Summer Edition.

All interested applicants should be aware that this is an in-person role, employed by Jays Care with a seasonal fixed-term contract. Camp staff are expected to be present at their designated job site each day of their summer contract, as well as attend all mandatory staff training.
