Help Wanted! Apply Within!

Summer Institute is looking for a few good people to provide service and leadership in critical areas for making SI run. If you are interested in putting your skills and passion to work to make the community work, now is the time!

In furtherance of our goal of making Summer Institute more accessible to more people, and our operations more transparent, we are opening up some community leadership positions to an application process. If you have done one of these job in the past and would like to do so again, please apply! If you have not but are interest in starting, please apply!

See below for a list of positions we need to fill for this coming July’s SI, and the campership value of each. PLEASE NOTE: These positions are different from, and in addition to, the workshift positions that each attendee is asked to do. Workshifts are one time jobs, the below are done throughout the week. You are welcome to apply for more than one, although you will only be selected for one. Feel free to note your preference on your application if you apply for several.

Application deadline is April 15th, so please apply soon! If you are applying for a position and still want to register now, please do not pay for your registration until you are notified regarding your position application. If you are asked to fill a position, you will be notified via email and provided with a campership number to give to the registration team. Remember, April 15th! Taxes and SI, together at last. One is fun, the other less so. I’ll let you decided which you think is which.
