We are a residency program for teenage student athletes in soccer and, shortly, we will be adding golf residents.
The Resident Advisor (RA) serves as an educator, counselor, administrator, role model and team member for the Grande Sports Academy residents. The RA works to create and maintain a healthy environment for the academic, athletic and personal growth of the students. The nature of the position is such that its responsibilities are determined not so much by a time clock or a calendar, but by the needs of residents. Some periods will require more time than average, and responsibilities will arise that cannot always be anticipated and scheduled. The RA position, by its very nature, requires an individual who is acutely sensitive to the needs of students; can be flexible regarding time demands, is willing and able to relate to a wide variety of individuals; is knowledgeable about the student-athlete experience, can perform essential administrative tasks, and has a genuine desire to be of service to others. The RAs must work together as a team to ensure consistency of policies, the fluidity of the schedule, and that each RA has their respective time off.
RA will be a resident of the Francisco Grande Hotel & Golf Resort. RA will be expected to assume some RA-On Duty night shifts. The RA On Duty is expected to be on property and will be part of the Security and RA Team that conducts Room Checks -- 10pm on weekdays, and 11pm on weekends.
