NSLC Aerospace Team Advisor Summer 2024

NSLC Aerospace Team Advisor Summer 2024


The NSLC is looking for Team Advisors (TAs) for the Summer of 2024. TAs guide students through their NSLC experience – serving as facilitators, presenters, simulation monitors, and resident advisors. The TA position is an opportunity to serve as a mentor and role model for talented young students and share your passion and knowledge of topics within the field of interest.

The Role:

Each TA is responsible for a small group of 12-16 students. TAs arrive on-site 5 days prior to student arrival to participate in a mandatory 4-day orientation & training. This training runs from 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM daily. Following training, TAs will work for 9-day sessions with a 3-day break in between. TAs work very long days and are expected to be ready to assist students at any point during the program. A typical day lasts from 9:00 AM – 10:30 PM.


  • Lead small group discussions and debriefings
  • Teach academic and leadership sessions, as well as set up and break down activities
  • Assist administrative staff, professors, and leadership facilitators with program components
  • Serve as a chaperone during off-campus trips and evening social activities
  • Reside in the dormitory on the same floors as students, serving as a Resident Advisor


  • TAs are generally current college sophomores – seniors. Current freshmen are generally considered for our Assistant Team Advisor (ATA) position
  • NSLC has a primary focus on leadership development. Applicants should have leadership experience and/or training
  • Our programs include TA-led sessions that require appropriate educational backgrounds and work/volunteer/intern experience


TAs will be paid $900 at the end of each session. The NSLC pays for room & board, meals during each session (most of which are eaten in the dining hall on campus), and transportation to and from the conference.
