Each summer we hire a group of energetic and responsible college students as program assistants or “PAs” to live alongside participants while providing 24-hour care and supervision. We actively seek out successful young adults who are committed to our shared mission of providing participants with a fun, engaging summer program experience in a setting that fosters independence and growth. In many cases we have the advantage of hiring Davidson Academy chaperones who are very familiar with working directly with profoundly gifted youth on a daily basis. After getting to know our seasonal team members through the interview process, PAs are thoughtfully matched with a small group of participants whom they accompany throughout the week in an effort to create a close-knit community.
Health supervisors also join us to oversee the wellness and care of each participant during the program. Our health supervisors are registered licensed nurses for the state of Nevada and are on-site daily to provide healthcare.
All staff members are carefully selected through a multi-step interview process and complete a background check, drug screening, and CPR/first aid certification before completing our multi-day training program prior to the program.
