As a Summer Chaperone, you will be reporting to the Dean, Head Chaperone, and Centre Programs Coordinator during your time of employment. As a Chaperone, you are responsible for not only being a resident assistant to the students in the dorm but supervising all the students in the program at the Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre during program hours. You are always “on call” but will work a rotating schedule with your fellow Chaperones.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Assist with check-in and check-out at the Georgia Tech dormitories
  • Maintain accurate attendance of resident students for each day arriving and departing from classes
  • Inform the Head Chaperone and Centre Programs Coordinator of any issues that may arise at the dormitories and Centre – this includes but is not limited to injuries, illnesses and inappropriate behavior
  • Supervise lunch time at the Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre
  • Transport resident students to doctor appointments as needed
  • Supervise evening and weekend activities
  • Plan activities and events for dorm students to promote a fun, welcoming experience
  • Ensure the safety of all Intensive students
  • Other duties and responsibilities as needed

In addition to your weekly pay, you will be provided room and meals at the Georgia Tech dormitories. If you drive students to and from Atlanta Ballet approved events and/or appointments, you will be reimbursed at the federal travel reimbursement rate. Although you will not be able to participate in the intensives, you are welcome to take any Adult Open Division classes at any Atlanta Ballet Centre free of charge. Please note that these classes should not conflict with your chaperone responsibilities.

Qualifications:

The ideal candidate will have previous chaperone or resident assistant experience. They will have an interest in dance and ballet and work well with parents and children. A candidate with a car is a plus.
