Working for Upward Bound is amazing!
Teaching Residential Advisor (Former Employee) – Johnson, VT – October 20, 2017
Working for Upward Bound was so much fun! It's a 6 week program (plus a week of training before the program) where you help a group of high school students work towards that dream of going to college. You get to share your college career with them, help them work through applications and teach them important life and college skills like time management and note taking.
The staff become really close, almost like a family. Wake up at 5am to do your personal routine, 7 bring the students over to breakfast, then the day is full of activities, classes, study times, etc., then final reports and go to bed by 1 or 2am. This goes from Sunday evening to Friday afternoon.
Free dorm for the summer, free food on weekdays, great pay.
Free housing, free food on weekdays, great pay, awesome people.
Almost 100 hours per week
