Position Duties / Responsibilities
Through our RamaYear program, recent college graduates devote a year or two of their early careers to an immersive year-round service experience on our Rhinebeck, NY campus. At Ramapo, these young adults spend their days working with groups of youth and educators on outdoor adventure-based retreats that build teamwork and communication skills. They design activities to meet each retreat group’s needs and goals, and lead teambuilding games and leadership development exercises. RamaYear staff live with and serve as mentors to our Staff Assistants: young adults, 18-25 years old, who seek to become self-sufficient and build social, independent living and job skills. Additionally, RamaYear play key roles in Camp Ramapo, a traditional summer camp experience for children ages 6-16 with social, emotional or learning challenges.
