Become a House Leader
Become part of the team of live-in mentors who manage the Alpha House. Make a major difference for others during the evening and weekends with the flexibility to go to school or work another job.
Provide Life-Changing Leadership
The House Leader program is the most challenging opportunity for growth at Alpha Academy. There is no cost to the program, you’ll even be paid to do it, but it will be a year of enormous personal development as you serve others in real personal, stretching ways. House Leaders are part of our Residential Program and are tasked with providing leadership to the other men who are students in the program. This involves building bonds with the students in the program and creatively finding ways to help them grow. Being a House Leader also means running the logistics of a household. House Leaders are responsible for assigning who will make certain meals, how the house will be kept up, enforcing the rules of the program, and coordinating activities for the house members to go do.
Benefits of Being A Leader
Tasks themselves are not the challenge, it’s the commitment to be involved and serving over a length of time with people who may not be the easiest to live with. However, there are many benefits to this program. House Leaders receive their own mentoring and coaching to help them grow to be great leaders in every area they will pursue. They also live on-site, rent-free, and enjoy free meals provided by Alpha Academy. There is also a $500 stipend for House Leaders.
The schedule is very accommodating to another job or school. House Leaders are only required to be on the job in the evenings and on the weekends. They will always have weekdays from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm open for whatever else they’re committed to. There are two House Leaders at a time, but only one is on duty on a given night. Typically, an individual House Leader will work 2-3 weeknights and 1 weekend day.
