START Leader Selections
Apply to be a START leader! Form friendships and help freshmen get acquainted with Young Harris College during a two day orientation session. START leaders are responsible for knowing all about Young Harris College and must be sincerely interested and skillful in sharing this knowledge with incoming students and their families. Orientation leaders serve as resources and guides to incoming first-year and transfer students.
Benefits include a stipend of $225 for the summer, meals during training and orientation, and on-campus housing throughout summer training and START sessions. Additionally, START leaders learn valuable leadership skills and develop group management techniques.
Stephanie Mills: "I love being a START leader for many, many reasons! For me personally, the best thing about the job is seeing my START kids succeed after the semester begins. I love watching them becoming involved and enjoying themselves and ultimately, becoming well-rounded, confident students. Watching my kids fall in love with YHC makes being a START leader so worth it!”
