  • Tutor students in institutionally-recognized academic and Christian courses

  • Grade homework assignments

  • Facilitate physical education sessions

  • Take students to church

RA’s must be spiritually mature and have a heart for working with teens. This is vital as staff are responsible for providing the love and support students need, while maintaining the discipline and accountability required.

The ideal candidate will be teachable, able to perform well under pressure, a team player and have strong communication, interpersonal and conflict resolution skills. This is an entry level position. Prior experience is not a requirement, but is considered. On the job training is provided.
