The University of Kentucky College of Engineering is seeking camp counselors for WiE Explore, a residential summer experience for high school women who are interested in pursuing engineering as a college degree. The program will be held from June 16-22, 2019. As a camp counselor, you will mentor and lead an engaged and diverse group of high school students as you plan and implement fun activities, direct them across campus to their engineering workshop activities, go with them to industry tours, and more. This is a great opportunity to directly impact a young woman's future as she prepares to consider UK and the field of engineering as a college choice.
All counselors will stay overnight in an on-campus residence hall for the duration of their camp. If selected, camp counselors are expected to commit to the entire duration of the camp, and should have no outside commitments during that time. Each camp counselor position is a paid experience. Counselors will be paid at a rate of $500 for the week.
- Must be a female, rising UK Engineering rising sophomore, junior, or senior with a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher
- Able to commit to the entire duration of the program with no external commitments
- Live in residence hall for the duration of the program (at no cost to you)
- Willingness to complete a background check and undergo 1 training prior to the start of the camp (virtual options available)
The application deadline for this program is Tuesday, May 7 at midnight. There may or may not be interviews for these positions. If there are, we will host both in-person and Skype interviews to accommodate your summer schedule.
