Junior Staff

Junior Staff


The Junior Staff is made up of Junior Coaches (JCs) and Program Assistants (PAs) who are alumni under age 21 that apply to volunteer at the seminar. JCs work alongside Leadership Coaches facilitating group discussions, leading cheers, and setting a solid example for youth leadership. PAs mostly work behind the scenes, assisting state committee members with their responsibilities, and working hard to ensure the seminar runs smoothly. All JCs and PAs work together ensuring Student Leaders receive the best possible experience while helping them reach their potential to become OUTSTANDING leaders!
