Two-thirds of the ninth grade reading achievement gap can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities during the elementary school years; nearly one-third of the gap is already present when children begin school (John Hopkins School of Education Journal, 2010).

fgCollege Mission Interns

Are you looking for a paid internship that gives you outstanding experience while making a positive impact in our community and its children? You will be part of a team of staff, educators, and volunteers where you can expand your professional, leadership, communication and vocational skills. Real-world experience with children and communities at-risk is invaluable whatever field you are studying. If you are studying social work, child development, or education, you will find opportunities to engage in planning and practice especially related to these fields. Housing is provided for out-of-town applicants. And working with youth at-risk means you’ll be spending your summer helping them get the best possible start in life, and that in itself is something to be proud of.
