8-Week Teacher-Advisor Responsibilities Include:
We assist all of our Teacher-Advisors in securing compensation for their summer experience, whether through on-campus organizations like the Office of Community and Service Learning or through the AmeriCorps VISTA program. If selected to serve, the RFP staff will work with each TA to secure funding.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns!
One of the most important parts of Freedom Summer is our team of Teacher-Advisors. The backbone of our academic programming, Teacher-Advisors serve as mentors and instructors, teaching courses in reading or math, leading Freedom Fellows on our camping trips, and building lasting relationships with Fellows as role models and advisors.
Our TAs come to the Delta from colleges and universities in Mississippi and around the country. TAs are college students who are passionate about the mission and spirit of the RFP, have a deep commitment to social justice, and wish to do service in underprivileged communities. TAs come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, but they are all grounded in the belief that justice is founded on access to opportunities and that freedom is rooted in Love, Education, Action, and Discipline.
TAs must be highly motivated, adaptive, and passionate, and should be interested in leadership and social justice.
Our timeline begins in January and we are selecting our team until mid-March. Our process is rolling, so please apply early.
