Junior Leaders

COLLEGE JUNIOR LEADERS

Smithsonian Student Adventures will be accepting one Junior Leader onto each of our Open Enrollment programs to help assist and learn from the SSA Program Leader. All Junior Leaders receive a 30% discount on their SSA program. To qualify as a Junior Leader, you must be a college student who has taken a foreign language for a minimum of three years, and be motivated to help lead a group in exchange for a heavily discounted tuition. The Junior Leader position is a great way to learn more about working in an international setting, expand your leadership skills, strengthen your college resume, and allow you to experience a Smithsonian Student Adventure from the inside.

Responsibilities include:

  • Chaperoning the group on the round-trip international flight
  • Participating in several online pre-program training sessions
  • Helping with logistics, planning, budgeting, and general leadership throughout the program
  • Participating in a post-program reflection session
  • Talking with future Junior Leaders about your experience and helping spread the word about SSA programs
