Staff Application

NCSY Summer Programs advisors have the unique opportunity to impact the lives of hundreds of Jewish teens. Talented and dedicated advisors are critical to the overall success of the NCSY Summer Programs experience. More than any other member of the staff, advisors are perhaps the most essential because they spend the single greatest amount of time with NCSY teens. Advisors make the programs happen.
