It can be challenging to stay inspired at your job when you’re totally removed from the results. But that’s not the case at Galileo. Not only do you get to see exactly what comes out of your hard work, but you get to take ownership of the victories of the entire company.
“The future of Galileo belongs to everyone here—it’s not just a group of executives behind an iron curtain,” says Viva Asmelash, outreach manager.
Galileo’s team is truly mission-driven. And what is Galileo’s mission? To boost creativity and innovation in children with fun and educational summer programs. Galileans shouldn’t be afraid to don a costume, sing a song, or enthusiastically channel their inner children.
“Our culture is about having a strong sense of purpose, walking the walk, and having authentic values that really come to life every single day,” explains Glen Tripp, founder and CEO.
Employees love to celebrate their wins together, and new traditions blossom every year. One of the company’s favorite events is Staff Training Weekend in late May/early June, where HQ staff and camp directors pass the torch by training 1,500+ summer hires on everything from innovative teaching techniques to team-building camp traditions. Everyone involved leaves this kick-off-to-the-camp-season invigorated to bring magic to life for over 20,000 campers.
“The people who are most successful and thrive at Galileo are the people willing to roll up their sleeves to get things done—and have a great attitude and lots of fun while doing it,” Asmelash says.
