Geering Up is a non-profit organization that exists to bring STEM programming to youth across BC regardless of their background. To achieve this Geering Up does four things: workshops in elementary schools, camps at UBC, after-school clubs at UBC, and outreach in communities outside of Vancouver. Our instructor team plans and delivers this fantastic content.

As an engineering and science outreach organization, we do give preference to students with and engineering or science background. However, for our instructing positions we consider other applicants who have strong experience working with children and are pursuing a career in education. For our non-teaching positions, we consider all applicants who have work experience in similar roles.

We want to see you in action! Our Instructor application will ask for you to attach a video. We ask that you film a quick video (no editing necessary) of you teaching anything within the STEM fields as if it were to a class of kids. Please keep it short (under 2 minutes) and upload the video to YouTube, as we will ask for a YouTube link. Returning staff are exempt from this.

Yes!! However, please be advised that several of our positions work with young children. If you are an international student on a work permit, a completed medical exam is required prior to your start date for these positions. Please refer to the Government of Canada website or contact your local visa office for additional information.

Yes! Anyone who joins us for camps season (June 10th start) can take classes during Term 1 of the summer. We will excuse you from work for any classes and finals you have in the last couple weeks of June. Lots of Instructors prefer a June start so that they can take some summer classes. If you plan on taking Summer Term 2 courses, then you would have to take a part-time position with us during camps season.

Student Assistants are the title we give to our staff who help out with our administration team. They often directly oversee a project, which could include supervising a group of Instructors.
