Omega Staff, Jobs & Service

Year Round (Core Staff)

Throughout the year, Omega employs approximately 75 Core Staff who live off-campus and plan, design, market, and implement the year’s programs, as well as handle the innumerable administrative, programming, and marketing tasks that keep Omega going. These are year-round, salaried jobs with full benefits.

Most Core Staff live locally in the Hudson Valley. They come from nearly all walks of life and join together to serve Omega’s mission to provide hope and healing to individuals and society through innovative educational experiences that awaken the best in the human spirit.

Core Staff benefits include health, dental, vision, life insurance, 403b plan, holidays, vacation, sick, and personal days. In addition, core staff can enjoy the use of campus property (lake/beach, sauna, tennis and basketball courts, hiking trails, and the Sanctuary), can attend all optional classes that are offered to program participants as well select from over 1,500 specially designed classes that are offered only to the staff community.

Core staff also receive a complimentary catalog workshop as well as discounts on other catalog workshops, discounts in the Café, Omega Store, and Wellness Center. When the campus is open, and they are at work, Core Staff can also enjoy complimentary lunch in the Dining Hall.

To complement the meaningful experiences found within all positions at Omega, Core Staff Programs are designed to support a process of self-discovery.

Year Round Core Staff Programs

Throughout the year, Omega offers a selection of Holistic Education Programs for Core Staff designed to enrich one’s life and build a sense of community.

During the open-campus season (April through October), Core Staff are welcome to attend the seasonal community classes and gatherings outside normal work hours. This includes a number of special events, such as community dances, talent shows, artist in residence classes and crafts fairs, and a weekly Sanctuary Hour, where we gather as a community to hear special guests share wisdom from their life experience.

Speakers have included Bobby McFerrin, Seane Corn, Julia Butterfly Hill, Alex and Allyson Grey, Alan Arkin, and our cofounders Elizabeth Lesser and Stephan Rechtschaffen.

During the winter months (November through March), Core Staff can enjoy various lunchtime peer-taught classes. These classes may include yoga, astrology, knitting, and studies in the expressive arts.

Since most Core Staff work behind-the-scenes to produce or support Omega workshops and programs for our program participants, it is important for Core Staff to experience workshops for themselves from time to time. Each year, Core Staff are encouraged to take a tuition-waived, 2-day workshop, on off-work hours (special permission from supervisors is required for a 5-day workshop).
