Thank you for your interest in Uncle Joe’s! Our 2018 written application has now closed. If you have recently submitted your application, our recruitment committee will be in touch with you shortly to continue with the recruitment process.

Training for the selected training class will be held in the spring semester and will provide trainees with the necessary skills to be effective resources for the Washington University community. Tentatively, the training meetings will be held on nine Saturdays from 10am to 6pm and eleven Tuesdays from 7pm to 10pm. Trainees will receive over 100 hours of training, and attendance at all training sessions is mandatory in order to become an active member of Uncle Joe’s. Following training, all members of Uncle Joe’s are required to be active members for two semesters (though not necessarily the two semesters immediately following training or two semesters in a row). As an active member, you will be responsible for sitting duties in our office, holding the beeper for 24-hour periods, attending weekly group meetings, and participating in other Uncle Joe’s events. Please take this into consideration when completing your application.

Next year’s application will open in September of 2019. In the meantime, if you have any questions about this year’s process, do not hesitate to contact us. As recruitment directors, we, Heather Shams and Jeanette Freiberg, have no say or influence in the selection process. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us at (or individually if you wish) and we’ll be glad to help.

Thank you for your interest!
