BEAM Summer Counseling/Teaching Assistant Opportunities for Undergraduates

Category: Calls for Applications / Undergraduate students

This summer, change the lives of talented middle school students from underserved backgrounds.

Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), a project of the Art of Problem Solving Initiative, is seeking undergraduate students or recent graduates to be counselors and teaching assistants for a summer program that gives everyone a chance to excel in mathematics. During summer 2018, we will run residential programs at Bard College and Union College in the Hudson Valley, and day programs in Los Angeles and New York City.

At both programs, you'll create a vibrant social experience for kids who are discovering for the first time that there are other people who like doing mathematics; you'll also be a TA for classes on topics such as number theory, combinatorics, problem solving, and computer science. At our residential program, counselors will also live with the students in the campus dorms. Be a role model and guide for students who are just beginning to set their educational path!

Counselors must be strong mathematically, be reliable, and take initiative. They should be charismatic and able to help the kids have fun. All counselors must be at least 18 years old by July 8, 2018 (if applying for LA positions, June 18, 2018).

Residential Program:
Compensation: \$2,600 for four weeks, plus room, board, and a transportation stipend.
Locations: Bard College, Union College
Dates: July 5 to August 1, 2018

Non-residential Program:
Compensation: \$3,600 for six weeks, breakfast/lunch on weekdays, an unlimited MetroCard at the NYC program
