Undergraduate Positions

The Academy of CIvic Life offers two exciting paid opportunities for Undergraduate students who want to give back to their communities. 

Undergraduate Teaching Assistants 

During Summer Session II, you will mentor high school students from historically marginalized backgrounds and financially disadvantaged households as they learn about democracy, politics, and civic justice. As an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant, you will spend three weeks living on campus and working with students as they master the content they are learning in the class they will be taking and developing the writing and literacy skills they will need to be successful college students. You will support them as they begin learning about and preparing for the college application process.

Undergraduate Student Leaders

During the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 academic year, you will work with Academy students as they finalize their college applications and develop and implement their civic engagement projects. You will meet with students twice a month--remotely (during the Fall) and in person (during the Spring) to  provide them with guidance and support as they imagine, plan, and enact positive change in their communities.
