The Yale Fellow will be an integral member of Mayhew’s summer team and will be charged with helping facilitate Mayhew’s intensive summer residential program for at-risk New Hampshire boys. Mayhew is a not-for-profit organization that challenges and helps at-risk New Hampshire boys to believe in themselves, work well with others, and find their best. At our summer facility located on Mayhew Island in beautiful Newfound Lake, New Hampshire, the boys are challenged to help create a positive, supportive, and sustainable community both within their cabin groups and in the greater Island community as a whole. “Hey, wait a minute,” you might be thinking, “that sounds like a summer camp to me. I don’t want to be a camp counselor.” Yes we’re a summer camp looking for counselors, but WAIT! We’re not your typical summer camp. Sure we have lots of fun, but we’re a place with a serious mission as well. We’re called the Mayhew Program because we’re much more than a summer camp. Mayhew begins for the boys on the Island, but the support Mayhew offers lasts throughout the year with our community outreach program. With a counseling staff of 20 charged with working with just 42 boys during each of two summer sessions, you’ll be an integral part of uniquely supportive and cohesive community. There’s a genuine camaraderie and shared sense of purpose among everyone at Mayhew. Mayhew offers great training in learning to work effectively with young people: an invaluable experience for anyone interested in teaching or working in the social services.
