Resident Counselor, RC, Summer Job

We are looking for dedicated, hard-working, open-minded people who have an abundance of energy and a desire to mentor / educate and supervise teenagers during the summer. Our programs range from 3-7 weeks, beginning in mid-June to early July, and ending in late July to mid-August.
Being a resident counselor is a challenging, demanding and highly rewarding experience. Many of our RC's are current or future educators. In addition, each summer we have a truly diverse group of RC's that have majored in everything from psychology to engineering. Our RC's go on to careers in education, law, business, medicine and more. Moreover, we are always looking for current educators that may have much of their summer off from school who want to continue working with teenagers but in a more diverse, flexible and exciting setting.
Many of our Resident Counselors frequently return for following summers and take on additional responsibilities in the program. We encourage and assist returning staff members and work with them to give them expanded leadership roles, opportunities and professional development. In fact, each year a very select few Resident Counselors have the opportunity to interview for full-time positions with Summer Discovery while others return year after year and become associate directors and even campus directors.
