Residential staff, also called Lead Supervisors and Resident Advisors (RAs), are trained to keep each student safe. Before the opening of the program, the residential staff receive training on rules, regulations, and safety information related to the students’ welfare. RAs are selected because of their commitment to education and ability to interact well with young people.

The residential staff members live in the residence hall on the same floor as students and are on duty 24 hours a day to ensure that every participant is safe. They are responsible for providing a comfortable and friendly atmosphere in the residence hall.

Male and female students will live in separate hallways in the same residence hall.
