In the past 10 years, we have placed over 500 full-time interns and 68,000+ volunteers in hundreds of Christian ministries. Job Description: The Summer Camp Residence Director provides oversight for a dormitory that houses about 40 summer camp staff and provides spiritual direction and community building activities for a team of 90 people who are serving kids and elderly homeowners in Pittsburgh.

We operates a progressive series of afterschool and summer programs for 300 urban young people and deploy over 2700 people annually to perform free home repairs for Pittsburgh's in-need elderly homeowners. The Pittsburgh Project is seeking an energetic, self-motivated person for the Summer Camp Residence Director position.
