About the BAC Urban Planning + Summer Academy Fellows Program:
The Urban Planning & Summer Academy Fellows Program offers a paid summer position for City of Boston high school-aged (14-18) residents who are curious about careers in urban planning and design.

About the TA job position:
The Boston Architectural College is seeking college and graduate level students, and recent graduates, who are interested in working this summer with diverse high school student fellows to explore urban planning/policy, urban design, and hands-on design.

The TAs will lead teams of students in hands-on, experiential, inquiry-based activities that are pre-designed by the program directors; will help create a fun, positive, inclusive learning environment for all; will work alongside BAC staff and faculty to implement the programs; and will lead/facilitate field trips and interviews with community and professional partners.

professions of design and planning; and/or making connections within these professions for their own career paths.
