Instructor/Camp Coordinator Position

How many of these are true about you?


A teacher or instructor

A camp counsellor or leader

A recent grad from science, tech, math, engineering, or the arts

A maker or tech lover

An actor, performer, and life of the party

Looking for work in a growing field and company

Interested in new, socially-responsible ways of doing business

A cool person that kids, parents, and coworkers are gonna love to be around

If most or all of that sounds like you, we want you to come and join us at MakerKids – a fun and growing company where you can ignite children’s potential.

About MakerKids

MakerKids, a certified B Corp, develops maker learning programs for kids and educators, and runs one of the only makerspaces for kids in the world.

We inspire kids to see their futures as inventors, entrepreneurs, and innovators.

We provide amazing interest-driven STEM programs to help kids move from being consumers to creators.

We’ve been featured in major media such as Wired, CTV and the Globe and Mail, and have spoken at SXSW, Maker Faire, MakerCon, and more.

Instructor Role

Maker programs are gaining steam. Demand for our programs is growing fast and that means we need to find and train awesome instructors to serve an enthusiastic and growing fan base.

Your job will be to lead MakerKids programming – after school programs, camps, sampler sessions, and other workshops and events.

Program content includes Robotics, Coding and Minecraft.

Other role tasks are varied: developing new activities, curriculum development, shop organization, materials purchasing, coordinating events, taking sales calls, etc.

You’ll love this role if you:

Want to have a positive impact on kids

Want to share your love for technology and making

Dig a relaxed, casual, and fun work environment (warning: musical theatre nerds among us)

Did we mention having fun at work? We like doing stuff together – improv classes, escape rooms, and other staff socials

And we also take our work seriously, create space for each other’s opinions and perspectives, and pursuing success together

Learning the Role

You don’t have to have the full range of technical skills that kids will need for their projects. Other MakerKids staff will initially be present during classes to teach specific skills. You can learn along with the kids! What we want to see from you is the Maker spirit – a love of learning and proven ability to pick up skills.

Prior to teaching classes, you’ll teach alongside other staff as a MakerKids Instructor in Training. After that, you will lead classes and events as a MakerKids Instructor.

Role Details

This position will start part-time with 3 to 30 hours per week (depending on your availability and our need), with the goal of increasing your hours and potentially leading to full-time employment

Work hours are flexible, but availability must include class times – at least one weeknight from 3:30 to 6:30 or 7:00 to 9:00, or one weekend day or half-day. Ideally you are also available for camps and PA days (summer camps, winter camp, March Break camp, etc.). You’ll also be required at some weekend events.

Our bright, colourful, playful Makerspace office is located at 2451 Bloor Street West, steps from Jane TTC station, which is a good home base for office tasks.


You’re a creative and energetic person who likes working with kids and exploring new ideas

You have experience leading kids in an experiential learning setting such as school, summer camp, museum interpretation, outdoor adventure, Montessori

Preferred if you are an Early Childhood Educator or have teaching experience

You have excellent communication skills, written and oral, and experience communicating with children and their families

You’re a Maker, with interest and experience designing and creating things, e.g. coding, electronics, robotics, Minecraft, crafting or some other way you entertain yourself and others with your creativity

You’re comfortable using electronics, computer software, hardware and various other technologies – or very willing to learn and teach yourself

Ideally, you have some performance experience, e.g. in the theatre

And also ideal, some customer service and sales experience too
