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, Teaching Assistants mentor high school students from historically marginalized backgrounds as they study democracy, politics, and civic justice. Teaching Assistants spend three weeks living on campus and working with students as they master the content they are learning in the class and prepare for the college application process.

Undergraduate Project Leaders

During the academic year, Project Leaders work with Academy students as they finalize their college applications and develop and implement their civic engagement projects. In the Fall, they lead meetings with students twice a month. In the Spring, the meetings are in-person ont the Stony Brook campus. Project Leaders provide important guidance and support as the participants imagine, plan, and enact positive change in their communities.
