Adventist Academies in North America
Empower and disciple other young adults through example and meaningful relationship.
Boarding school campuses across North America need volunteers to help in various roles each year. These needs may include tutoring, food service, administration, or other positions. Often schools ask for assistant deans to help care for and disciple their dorm students. Campuses can range from 60 to 400 students with a wide range of how many students will be in the dorm. Boarding school campuses can be like a family and provide a unique opportunity to serve and empower high school students just a few years behind you. The details of your role will vary depending on the campus where you serve, but a typical Assistant Dean position fills about 25 hours per week and covers about half the weekends. There is flexible time for exploring your area, doing hobbies, getting involved in local projects, and helping with extra-curricular activities happening at the school.
