Become an AIT

AITs at Generation Chosen are fundamentally charged with shadowing our lead Anchors so that they can, one day, become Anchors themselves (either in their own respective communities or for Generation Chosen). There are two tiers of AITs: Primary and Secondary. Primary AITs are tasked with shadowing our lead Anchors in the areas of Emotional Intelligence, Mental Health, Education, and Civic Engagement and producing original content in these areas, while supporting the dissemination of the established curriculum. Secondary AITs are responsible for handling ancillary tasks like Recreation (Managing the Gym), Gaming (Managing our Games Room), and being apart of our Welcome Committee (Introducing new mentees[Anchees] to our organization and handling attendance/research initiatives).

The position of an AIT is a 26 week commitment during the K-12 calendar school year. The expectation is that one be available to work for up to 4 hours on either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, and, in addition committee to up to 4 hours of work outside of any particular Generation Chosen site.
