“One of the reasons I decided to become a peer leader was because I wanted to make a difference, to support others as my first-year peer leader had done for me. She motivated me to step out of my comfort zone and apply for a leadership role that I probably wouldn’t have done without her. Being a peer leader, I have grown as a person, a leader, a student, and as a friend. I am grateful for the connections that I wouldn’t otherwise have made, lifelong friendships, and the opportunity to be a part of the First-Year Experience Team.” Alya Christensen ‘22

NVU-Lyndon Public Safety

Gain leadership experience and get paid an hourly wage through the Public Safety Student Leadership Program!

Spring 2022
Student Officer
Student Officers mostly work weekend hours with some occasional hours during the week mixed in. Public Safety operates three shifts: 4am-12pm, 12pm-8pm, and 8pm-4am. We rotate the shifts so that you’re not always working the same shift. This is not your average work-study position. It requires a lot of walking, checks of the campus, attention to detail, and dedication.

Summer 2022
Student Officer
Summer Perks include free campus housing in the Rita Bole Complex and an hourly rate of $12.55/hour. During the Summer, Student Officers cover weekend shifts and various shifts during the week when the full-time staff are on leave.

Students can apply for either position here.

“Alumni of our Student Leadership Program have gone on to become Police Officers, Border Patrol agents, Correction officers, EMTs, State Fire Marshals, Sheriffs, and more. Foster Rich ’20 went on to join the South Burlington Police Department as a full-time officer, and Nicholas Boudreau ’19 went on to join Marble Valley Regional Correctional Facility as a full-time Corrections officer. Many students have used our program as a resume-builder to enter careers outside of law enforcement as well.”

College Steps is recruiting student peer mentors to support the academic and independent living goals of NVU-Lyndon College Steps students living with social, communication, or learning challenges.

  • Flexible schedule
  • Specialized training and supervision; paid position
  • Virtual and hybrid shifts available
