Information about the Senior Counselor Position: PBHA’s Summer Urban Program is a set of 10 student-run summer camps at 12 different sites for children in Boston and Cambridge. Each summer, approximately 150 college students work in these communities. Serving over 800 youth, the summer programs are structured into mornings of curricular, classroom-based enrichment and afternoons of field trips in and around Boston. Program dates are still being set for 2019 (last year, as an example, move-in and move-out are from June 10th, 2018 to August 12th, 2018.)                                                                                                                                                     Each camp uses the city as a classroom without walls, and the summer culminates in final trips and a show. An essential element of the summer program is community partnership; teens who are often former campers are hired as junior or senior counselors and directors, and parents and community leaders play an important role in working with the program.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       About the application process - first priority deadline is February 8th, 2019: Over 250 people generally apply for under 90 spots.
