Summer Program Role

As a counselor at either program, you’ll have both an academic and a non-academic role:

  • be a role model and mentor to the students,

    • June 21, 2021 for LA programs.
    • July 5, 2021 for NY programs.

  • Have the mathematical skills and experience sufficient to think on your feet while TAing challenging BEAM classes. (See the pages on the programs for the types of classes taught at each program.)
  • Be reliable and take initiative.
  • Be able to help kids have fun. (You don’t need to be traditionally outgoing if you can engage kids in fun activities, but it helps.)
