T.R.E.E.: A Commitment to Quality Education

The most important goal of T.R.E.E. is to provide quality educational programs for children and adults.  With this goal, the staff at T.R.E.E. is required to have a commitment and dedication to helping others learn.  In order to fill this commitment, the staff must be able to:

  • love working with children

  • make children the center of the learning process

  • concentrate on the needs of the children, teachers and parent volunteers, whose backgrounds are highly diverse

  • manage children in a structured, yet positive and constructive manner 

  • work long and hard hours, that are both physically and emotionally demanding. Residential program days usually last from 7:30AM until 11:00PM

  • get really dirty and still keep a smile

  • work within a scripted and structured curriculum 

  • role-play, pretend, be creative and imaginative, think like a kid

  • perform without always needing to be the star (the children are the stars)

  • clean up after kids and adults

  • be supportive in a close-quarters community

  • work independently, yet be able to work within a community.

Although working for T.R.E.E. requires commitment, there are huge rewards:

  • Being able to work with children in the outdoors

  • Witnessing appreciation, excitement and enthusiasm in children

  • Learning valuable teaching and managing skills based on an innovative and effective model of education  that has been in operation since 1985

  • Working with other like-minded people in a community setting

  • Making lasting ties with members of the education community , including schools, teachers, and other community organizations

  • Being a kid again
