A dedicated and enthusiastic educator, Los Angeles resident Max Huber accepted his first teaching position at MATCH Charter Middle School in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, soon after his graduation from Harvard University. One of only 70 full-time educators and mentors selected from a pool of nearly 1,800 applicants, Max Huber accepted an assignment as a math and literacy tutor for a small group of sixth-grade students. As a MATCH Corp Fellow, Huber also assisted in grading and curriculum planning, including action plans for students at high risk of dismissal because of behavioral problems and academic performance.
Before attending Harvard and coming to MATCH, an early interest in leadership and education prompted Max Huber to seek a position as a camp counselor at Pine Island Camp, a traditional summer wilderness camp located at Belgrade Lakes, Maine. As a counselor and mentor, Huber planned and led canoeing and backpacking trips, and put his own experience to good use as head rowing instructor. Max Huber also planned an extensive program of boating and backpacking expeditions throughout Maine. He soon advanced to assistant director, providing training and management for 50 counselors and support staff. He continues to devote his summers to Pine Island Camp. He brought similar skills to his work leading backpacking trips for Harvard University's First-Year Outdoor Program.
Max Huber has lived and worked in Ecuador and Argentina, and served as a 2008 summer intern for the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies. He maintains full proficiency in Spanish. Huber was also named a media team intern for the Sierra Club in San Francisco, a role that required him to author talking points and advisories for countrywide media campaigns, and to write articles for two of the organization's blogs, The Green Life and Compass.
