Every year, the Yale Pathways Summer Scholars Programs welcomes over 150 local New Haven public high school students to campus free of cost to take part in STEM and Arts & Humanities classes with Yale faculty. Students will have the unique opportunity to learn about coding, neuroscience, engineering, art-making, art history, college essay writing, and more.
During the STEM program, about 40 rising high school seniors are granted the special opportunity of living in one of the Residential Colleges, returning home on the weekend between each one week-long session. Residential Advisors (RA) will live with students in the Residential Colleges, and their primary responsibility will be to supervise and mentor residential students. They will also be asked to help with logistical needs, plan activities, and participate in college readiness programming. Each RA will be responsible for about 10 students.

Prospective Residential Advisors must be able to make a three week-long commitment, July 1st to 19th. This is a full-time paid position; with shifts starting at 3 PM. Room and board are provided for the duration of the program in addition to a $1600 stipend. We are looking for candidates with maturity, enthusiasm, organizational skills, a sense of humor and a genuine interest in young people and outreach. If you have worked or volunteered in education, tutored young people, or anything else that’s related, we want to hear it in your application! Previous work with youth is preferred but not required, and content knowledge in STEM is not required.
