Senior Counselors

LEAP Senior Counselors (with their Junior Counselors) lead groups of children and teenagers as teachers, mentors, and positive role models to help our youth develop both academically and socially. LEAP counselors are at the center of the LEAP experience for our young people and they must demonstrate the highest level of commitment.

LEAP Senior Counselors must be college or graduate students in good academic standing at a 2- or 4-year college or university. We also accept applicants who are currently attending a trade school or who are in military training and have an open schedule to work during our program hours.

Contact Abdul-Razak Zachariah if you have any questions regarding the application process.


LEAP will still operate a Summer 2020 program and we will still be hiring counselors to work with our youth. We will be running a hybrid site-based and virtual program in which counselors and youth will alternate between those program settings each week during the summer.

LEAP is currently accepting Senior Counselor applications ONLY from applicants living in or within commuting distance of New Haven, CT. Apply AS SOON AS POSSIBLE as we are making hiring decisions soon and will review applications as soon as they are submitted.


LEAP counselors will still play a vital role in creating an engaging and educational summer for New Haven youth during these challenging times. We are excited to have you join our team!
