Harpswell Leadership Resident Program
The Harpswell Leadership Resident (LR) program is a volunteer opportunity to teach, mentor and live with Cambodian university students in Harpswell’s dormitories and leadership centers in Phnom Penh. The position is for young women in their mid-twenties and older who have broad international and cultural experiences that they can share with our students. Over the past 10 years, Harpswell has hosted more than 100 Leadership Residents.
Leadership Residents live in the Harpswell dormitories for three to six months, and teach, mentor and advise the students. They are encouraged to share their skills, talents and interests with the students.
The primary responsibilities of Leadership Residents include:
- Teach Harpswell’s core curriculum, with topics designed to promote critical thinking, leadership skills and career readiness
- Facilitate critical thinking discussions about current events
- Mentor students in one-on-one sessions, teaching English, life skills, leadership and personal development
- Plan cultural activities
In addition to providing room and board, Harpswell pays LRs a small living stipend. We ask LRs to arrange their own transportation to Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
