Apply to be a Program Assistant with the College Prep Program

The College Prep Program is an immersive, on-campus learning experience at Washington University for St. Louis area talented, yet under-resourced high school students. Incoming scholars live on campus for two weeks the summer after freshman year and three weeks the summers after sophomore and junior year. College Prep scholars also attend workshops, lectures, and campus activities throughout the school year. Graduates of the Program leave ready to excel—academically and socially—in college.

The Office of Government & Community Relations is seeking qualified Washington University in St. Louis undergraduates to fulfill the role of Program Assistant for the College Prep Program. Program Assistants (PAs) are integral members of the Washington University College Prep Program team and provide direct supervision of the high school scholars. Interested candidates should have a passion for youth development, an openness and appreciation for different backgrounds and identities, and the ability to work proactively in a structured environment serving as a mentor and role model to scholars.

Program Assistants will receive pay of $10/hour. Room and board are provided.

Applications are due by Monday, January 21. Applicants are required to upload a resume and list the contact information of two references. For Washington University in St. Louis undergraduate students, one reference must be an employee of the university. Apply here.
