The GT 1000 and GT 2000 program is looking for team leaders for these upcoming summer and fall semesters. GT 1000 and 2000 are seminar courses that offer support to incoming first-year students and transfer students, respectfully. Team Leaders (TLs) work as mentors for these newly accepted students by offering a network of peer support, introducing new students to campus traditions, and introducing students to Georgia Tech Resources. TLs are resources to the class as well, aiding in communications between the instructors and students, assiting with classroom presentaions, and helping to foster a community within the class. This is a volunteer position, meaning students who participate in the TL program receive neither pay nor academic credit. Those who complete the TL experience gain valuble leadership experience, strengthen their own leadership identity, demonstrate and improve oral communication and presentation skills, learn to effectively communicate with GT 1000/2000 instructors and enchance their understanding of Georgia Tech resources and culture.
