How to Apply for 2018 Summer Staff:

So, you’ve read all the information about summer staff and you’ve decided that working at Cascades is something you’d like to pursue, but you have NO idea how to do that. Just follow this easy checklist to ensure that you’re on your way to an amazing summer!

  1. Fill out our online application.
  2. New Staff: Contact three references if you have not worked on summer staff at Cascades in the past two summers and have them fill out our online reference form. You must have one of each of the following: teacher, employer, and pastor/spiritual leader. (No substitutions without prior arrangement.) Returning Staff: If you worked at Cascades last summer or the summer before, please contact one reference and have them fill out the online reference form. Please submit a new reference that you have not previously used. No family members, former S.A.L.T. Leaders, or individuals who currently work at Cascades.
  3. Once your application is complete and all references have been received, we will contact you for an in-person or video chat interview (new staff) or a phone conversation (returning staff).
  4. After your interview, we will make a hiring decision within two weeks (with the exception of some leadership positions).

If you are hired:

  • You will receive a contract via email.
  • Look over your start date, end date, and time-off requests, and confirm that they are accurate.
  • Fill out the hiring paperwork.
  • Sign it, and send it in ASAP.
