Collegian Role & Position Qualifications
Collegians are enormously important to the successful functioning of REACH. Each Collegian supervises a group of approx. twelve REACH students, leading them through their daily academic and recreational schedules. As a role model, the Collegian is the person with the greatest personal contact with REACH students and direct influence on his students in their formation as reflective servant-leaders. He serves as a central link between the students and the REACH Director, Assistant Director, Deans, and Faculty. The position, therefore, requires a great deal of personal responsibility and commitment to the mission of the program.
Qualified candidates will exhibit the following characteristics: a heightened sense of responsibility, demonstrated leadership ability, an understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity, social maturity, high self-initiative, a good collegiate academic record, and the ability to work well within a dynamic teamwork setting. Patience, empathy, compassion, hard work, a sense of humor, and personal flexibility are essential to this role. Though not required, REACH prefers applicants with the following additional characteristics: experience working with middle school students, lifeguard/water safety certification, proficiency in Spanish, and particular skills, talents or interests that can be shared with students.
