Teen Leader - Zakynthos, Greece
The Peligoni Club is a holiday destination for all ages, but we know that family holidays with teenagers can be a difficult balancing act for parents to get right. At Peligoni, teens can dip in and out of activities, make new friends or spend time with their families – it’s totally up to them.
We are looking for inspiring Teen Leaders to encourage our young guests to get to know one another, embrace new things and get as much enjoyment out of their holiday as possible.
Peligoni is a place where teens can roam free, mingle with other guests and make their own fun without feeling like they are constantly being monitored. Our Teen Leaders will subtly encourage them to get involved in daily activities and make new friends without it feeling too much like forced, organised fun.
These activities might include a thrilling Ringo Rampage, a tennis tournament, a SUP safari or a chilled evening playing cards over dinner. Each week will vary depending on the ages of the children and it is the role of our Teen Leaders to ensure there is always something for everyone from age 11+ to take part in.
This is a fantastic opportunity for young professionals with experience of working with children and teenagers, perhaps as a sports or activity leader, who are looking to gain additional experience whilst working in a beautiful environment. We need individuals who are creative, enthusiastic, self-motivated and able to inspire and encourage our teenage guests.
In your spare time, as well as being able to explore the island and experience the local food and culture, you will have access to the club’s watersports facilities, allowing you to hone your existing skills or learn new ones in sailing and windsurfing.
