Seasonal Employment at TIP


Each year, Duke TIP hires more than a thousand seasonal employees to staff its educational programs in both online and face-to-face formats. Our programs take place at locations across the country—primarily in Southeast, Southwest, and Midwest states. Our seasonal program staff members teach innovative courses to academically talented students, design dynamic social activities that support their emotional and social development, and create a supportive community that encourages students to forge lifelong friendships with their peers.

Creating a successful educational program for academically talented students requires a team of dedicated staff members working together. We typically hire individuals to work in one of four functional areas: site leadership, academic, residential, and health and wellness. Opportunities are available in both our face-to-face (residential) and online programs.

While the majority of our seasonal positions are available during the summer months, our ongoing year-round programming allows qualified applicants to work across multiple dates and in multiple roles. When you work for TIP, you gain invaluable experience working with youth, develop new skills that can help you in whatever career path you choose, and have the opportunity to teach and mentor the most amazing group of motivated students you will ever encounter. When you become a part of our team, you also receive a competitive salary and join a very special, collaborative TIP staff community.
