Who We Are
People are drawn to Omega from all walks of life and a range of backgrounds. Omega Core Staff and Seasonal Community Members are lifelong learners who embrace service as a personal ethic, strive to spread hope and healing in the world, and enjoy exploring and deepening their own life path.
Core Staff are salaried employees who work all year to plan, design, market, and implement the year’s programs, as well as handle the innumerable administrative, programming, and marketing tasks that keep Omega going. We maintain approximately 75 Core Staff. Most are residents of the Hudson Valley, and some are former Seasonal Community Members.
Our Seasonal Community is comprised of Seasonal Staff and Seasonal Service Corps Members. Seasonal Community Members are between ages 18 and 80+, and travel from all over the world to be part of our learning
Seasonal Staff work for six months, between April and the end of October, while the campus is open. They work full-time, filling essential support roles that help Omega offer its unique programs, workshops, and events.
For those wishing to join our Seasonal Community who cannot do the Seasonal Staff full-time, six-month option, Seasonal Service Corps Members join us for up to 13 weeks between May and October and offer service up to 28 hours per week.
Together, Omega’s Core Staff and Seasonal Community Members work to provide innovative educational experiences that awaken the best in the human spirit. They are compassionate, service-oriented, and hope to make a difference in the world.
