Description

The purpose of the Summer Program is to provide hands on educational and learning for middle school students (who are clients in FCA’s After School Program).  The goal is to keep our students engaged in cross-curriculum activities that are interesting and fun while broadening the scoop of their exposure to various educational and cultural activities. The program utilizes the Agency’s partnership with Norwalk Community College (NCC), where both the After School and Summer Programs are based. 

This is a direct service internship that will give the student exposure to a social service agency, specifically working with middle school aged youth (11-14) who come from diverse backgrounds.  The summer program serves approximately 30 students, many of whom are from low-income families who have little opportunities for positive activities in the community.  In addition, many of the young people and their families have social service needs that are being addressed through our case management services.  These may include issues related to poverty and mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, or attention deficit disorders.  The student intern will assist the coordinator in developing and implementing curriculum for the summer program.  

 
Position Requirements Candidates for this internship will be college students, preferably those who are interested in pursuing a career working with youth through education or social services. Candidates must be available to begin internship the last week in May, working approximately 14 hours per week (times are flexible but some afternoons are required). Once the summer program begins at the end of June, candidates must be available four days a week (Monday – Thursday) from 8:30am-4:30pm daily as well as 1-2 hours each Friday morning until the end of program in early August. Dates are TBD.

 Have experience working with youth and an ability to engage, be outgoing, and friendly
