Each Junior Counselor will help supervise a Living Group of 8-10 ACADEMIA LATINA students during those times when the students are not involved in classes. Junior Counselors will live in the dorms assigned to them and eat all meals in the dining hall. The time commitment for the job is considerable. Students attending ACADEMIA LATINA range in age from 12 -15 years, so the program must provide a high level of supervision, and Junior Counselors will be an integral part of the needed supervision. Each Junior Counselor will serve as a Teaching Assistant for one or more classes each day. Junior Counselors have an 11:00 p.m. curfew. Junior Counselors must have completed their junior or senior year of high school and be in academic good standing.
