Leadership at Reed

Reed Leadership Academy Coach Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering as a Reed Leadership Academy (RELAY) Coach, where leaders are coaching leaders. You were nominated by colleagues and friends because of your outstanding leadership within your organization and local community. We appreciate your investment in student leaders, and we look forward to working with you!

Once we have finalized our student cohort, mid to late semester, we will confirm with you whether or not we have a strong coaching match for you, based on students' academic and professional interests and your experiences, occupation, and industry. If we are not able to match you with a student initially, we may need to make reassignments part way through the year, and it is possible that we may call on you at that time, if you are still interested and available. You will be informed as soon as possible with the results of the initial matching process.

Please do not hesitate to contact Julie Kern-Smith (julie.kern.smith@reed.edu) or Dayspring Mattole (mattoled@reed.edu) if you have any questions. Thank you!
