Summer Group Leader Program

Open to Undergraduate Students

We are delighted that you are interested in our Summer Group Leader Program. We think that it will be an exciting and fascinating summer for you. We have extraordinarily talented teachers and bright students who learn in non-traditional ways.

The Lab School of Washington addresses the needs of children with average to superior intelligence who manifest specific learning disabilities. A significant discrepancy exists between their ability and their educational achievement as a result of these learning disabilities.

As a Group Leader, you will be the anchor, the one consistent person, for a group of twelve students. You will accompany the children to their scheduled classes where you will assist the teachers. You will receive supervision from the Coordinators of the Summer Program.

This is an unpaid position, but we assure you that you will receive excellent training and experience. We will write you a letter of recommendation at the conclusion of the Summer Session. For those of you who wish to gain college credit, check with your university as to whether or not they will give credit to you for this summer’s experience as an independent study. Paid positions in The Lab School’s After School program may also be available.
