STOIC TEAM LEADERS (Prefects)

Prefects are volunteers who help administer the curriculum. INTERGALACTIC isn’t ‘teaching’ anything, rather the student is teaching themself and the prefects are merely assisting with the process.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Must be a member or leader of a Stoa for at least one calendar year

  • Be somewhat familiar with the principles of Stoicism and its authors

  • A preferred, though not required, qualification is completion of the Stoic Essential Studies course from the College of Stoic Philosophers

Upon assent to the position the candidate affirms their dedication to the pursuit of

  • Wisdom

  • Virtue

  • and pledges to share their knowledge of Stoic wisdom with those who ask

DUTIES

It is expected that among the Prefects there will be at least two in attendance at each monthly discussion.

The job of the team lead is not to test anything other than if it is reasonably likely that the student did read those parts of the text claimed. The prefect never has to deny a student outright, but may refer questionable cases to a Headmaster.

**Note: the goal is to encourage ANY reading of the text and so someone should really have to try in order not to pass the review.

Upon a successful review, the Prefect reports the progress and the achievement is noted on the master spreadsheet. Once all four milestones for the given text have been signed, the reader will be able to move on to the next text if so desired. The achievement will be recorded and a certificate issued at the end of term celebration.
