Who is Galileo Learning?
Galileo Learning brings best-in-class educational programs to tens of thousands of kids each year through in-person summer day camps across the country and after-school programs for low-income students in the San Francisco Bay Area. We believe the world needs innovators and that innovation can be taught. We think kids who learn to explore and who are willing to tackle challenges despite their fears are happier, more creative, and more confident when faced with life’s challenges. And we think kids with these skills are more likely to change our world and be masters of their own.
Here, values aren’t just lip service — we aim to be visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined, and reflective each day and back that effort up with structure to ensure our success. People who joyfully work hard together, feel accountable for their work, are mission-driven, and play well with others tend to thrive in our culture. We've been ranked #1 Best Place to Work in the Bay Area more than 10 times, have been named one of Forbes' Best Small Companies in America, and over 97% of our summer staff say they would recommend working for us. Joining Galileo means joining an organization that is a model of innovative learning, with a company-wide commitment to Inclusion and Diversity, broadening our impact, and a stellar staff experience.
