The Resident Assistant (RA) is crucial member of the Edina ABC organization and has the opportunity to make a deep and positive impact in the lives of high-potential teens. The RA lives in the Edina ABC house full time along with our scholar and the Resident Director (RD). The RA assists the RD in providing a supportive, structured, family-like atmosphere and overseeing the students’ academics and daily lives. The RA reports to the RD. The RA may also keep another job or coursework up to 20 hours per week as long as RA duties are fulfilled. The RA is expected to commit to the position for at least one school year. Typical working hours for the RA are 4pm-6:30pm Monday through Friday and one weekend evening. Working hours are somewhat flexible depending on Resident Director availability, and resident staff work together to determine a mutually beneficial schedule, but the RA’s hours should not typically exceed 15-20 hours per week. The RA may study or do other activities at the ABC house during working hours when RA duties are fulfilled and when not directly assisting scholars or RD. Resident staff are both generally off duty during school hours and every Sunday from 12 pm – 7 pm when scholars are away with host families. Resident staff also have the support of other ABC staff, a highly involved board, and an extensive volunteer community and are able to schedule additional days and times off.
