Our volunteer Leadership Resident program is for young women in their mid-twenties and older who have had broad international and cultural experiences that they can share with our students.
Leadership Residents live in the Harpswell dormitories for three to six months, and act as mentors, teachers and advisors to the students. They help the students with English conversation and teach much of our core curriculum. In addition to leading Cambodia Daily class discussions, leadership residents are available for one-on-one mentoring. Leadership Residents are encouraged to organize cultural and sports activities with the students in and around Phnom Penh, and explore Cambodia both on their own and with the students. We pay a small living stipend, and ask Leadership Residents to arrange their own transportation.
