Duke TIP

CRISIS Program

CRISIS is Duke TIP’s summer residential program for talent search students who have completed the fifth or sixth grades. CRISIS offers you a three-week employment opportunity to work with these academically gifted students. You will work with a new group of students each week and must commit to working the entire term. As a CRISIS staff member you will help students build leadership and teamwork skills as they collaborate to solve a community crisis. Each week students spend 30 hours on instructional and research activities and an additional 15 hours on leadership, team-building, and recreational activities. An administrative team oversees student supervision and manages program operations. Highly qualified instructor/teaching assistant teams lead research teams of approximately 14 students each. Outside the classroom, a carefully selected staff of residential counselors supervises students during meals, free time, and planned social and recreational activities. You should possess a genuine interest in the academic, social, and emotional growth of adolescents, exhibit maturity, a positive attitude, and a willingness to serve as a role model.
