Job Description

Through our RamaYear program, recent college graduates devote a year or two of their early careers to an immersive, residential, year-round service experience on our Rhinebeck, NY campus. Staff members live and work on our 250 acre Rhinebeck, NY campus alongside a team of other driven and passionate young adults from across the country.

RamaYear who work in our Staff Assistant Experience serve as mentors to our Staff Assistants: young adults, 18-25 years old, with social, emotional, and learning differences. Ramayears work directly with Staff Assistants: facilitating programming, supporting participants in vocational training, and providing ongoing coaching. Individuals are expected to steward participants through each day and evening by building positive relationships with participants, modeling appropriate behaviors, and communicating clear expectations.

  • A foundation for a career in Human Services, such as Social Work, Special Education, or Occupational Therapy
  • Access to Ramapo’s professional network which includes year-round staff members, staff alumni, and board members in related fields
  • Intensive, hands-on experience with young adults with disabilities
  • Access to a beautiful campus in the Hudson Valley with hiking trails, a lake, a gym, and more


  • Recent college graduate
  • Ability to live on Ramapo’s campus in Rhinebeck, NY for 12-18 months
  • Motivation, and an interest in Ramapo’s mission
  • Experience in special education, community development, or human services is a plus
