We are currently seeking students age 14+ to serve as Volunteer Classroom Assistants in our 2017 Summer Enrichment Program. Volunteers will have the opportunity to explore career options in teaching and administration, serve as “experts” and mentors to younger students in their chosen field whether it be art, math, robotics or rock band, gain professional working experience and fulfill community service hours required for graduation. Weekly group meetings will provide a forum for students to discuss the challenges they face taking a leadership role in the classroom.
Those students who volunteer for a full five weeks become eligible the following year to compete for paid internships and even teacher aide positions in subsequent years. A limited and variable number of paid internships will be offered each year; certain of those will be restricted for students in College and Career Pathways Academies.
The Summer Enrichment Program runs 7:45-12:30 Monday-Thursday for 5 weeks, June 12-July 13, 2017. Volunteers can sign up for one to five weeks of the program, but are encouraged to volunteer for two weeks minimum.
