What should I discuss in my introductory video?

The introductory video is intended to convey a bit of your personality. You can use the time to tell us about yourself, read a story, sing a song, play an instrument, or otherwise give us an idea of who you are.

Do the activities I direct have to directly relate to my educational background or employment experience?

As an Activity Director, we trust that you will use your judgement in order to craft an engaging experience. If you feel comfortable and competent to share the content you have created, give it a try!

How should I structure the frequency of my activities?

You can offer an activity to participants as a one-time activity, or you can offer an activity as a series recurring at your desired frequency. 

Do I have to get my proposed activity approved prior to launch?

As an Activity Director, we know that you will use your judgement in order to craft an engaging experience. Prior to showing up online, your activity will be approved. Kids Connected personnel will review the activity summary and reserves the right to decline to host an activity if it seems contrary to the morals or standards of Kids Connected or otherwise inconsistent with our brand.


How far in advance must I provide an activity summary?

The sooner you provide your activity summary, the sooner we can approve it and get it listed on the website and begin marketing your activity. However, do not hesitate to provide your summary as your proposed start date approaches as enrollees may be looking for activities at the last minute.
