  • Responsibilities

    Elevate is an education company that attracts high performing people who want to make a difference to school students’ lives. Our presenters (of which we have about 200 around the world) are all current college students, who become role models within the NYC and NJ school community.

    We go into schools and deliver incredibly engaging and fun seminars to improve student achievement. You can find more about us online (www.elevateeducation.com).

    Over the past 16 years we have had hundreds of presenters go on to become comedians, actors, film producers, as well as business leaders and entrepreneurs. The job is completely flexible around your college schedule, as our entire presenting body is comprised of college students.

    The starting rate is $40-$50 per hour, and increases as your skills in the job progress. You are also paid to travel to the schools, and there are opportunities to present across different parts of the US, as well as the UK, Australia, South Africa and Singapore.

    Job Description

    You will be visiting schools around New York and New Jersey to present engaging 80-minute workshops to middle and high school students. The topic: showing students how to achieve their personal best at school.

  • Qualifications
    • We are not just looking for regular public speakers, or someone who has done a public speaking course in college.

    • We are looking people who like being in front of an audience and love to tell a joke or a story.

    • Fun fact: all presenters at Elevate are between the ages of 18-30!

  • Compensation
    $40 - $70 per hour
  • Benefits

    You will experience benefits like:

    • Pay – earn in 1 hour what would normally take 4. Need we say more?
    • Flexibility – instead of concrete hours that never change, you can fit your seminars around your college classes. The result? More time to relax and hang out with friends.
    • Upskilling – stand out from the crowd and get the edge by gaining commercially valuable skills like public speaking and leadership;
    • Rewarding – you can spend your time slugging through admin work and waiting tables, OR you can make a genuine difference to hundreds of school students every day.

    If these perks aren’t your style, then please don’t apply. But if they are, Elevate is conducting interviews over the coming weeks and we want you!
