Hi, we are looking for four great interns to act as both tutors and program aides, with the ability to gain some great experience in the non-profit world along the way. We are a successful, local children’s non-profit, which has been in operation since 1993. We have four great programs, but are currently seeking new interns for our after-school educational program, which tutors children and prepares them to enter into college.
Ideally, you as a candidate:
-Are a college student, preferably an Education Major, but NOT required
-Have had experience working with children in some general capacity
-Have great and sincere compassion and commitment to helping a population of under-served, at-risk youth
-Are available for six hours per week, late afternoons-Tuesdays and Thursdays, to work and tutor children on-site, in Venice.
-Are very organized, and would like to help in managing student’s grades and tutor reports, and sign-ins.
-Would be able to join us on the occasional field trip or movie outing, etc.
-Are looking to gain very valuable references for your resume or college CV
The ideal intern candidate would be extremely organized, aiding the program director in collecting documents and grades from children, helping to keep tally of their end of semester reports, and filing the Tutor Reports that are returned to them, and discussing these reports with the Exec. Director and Program Director. In addition, you would also act as a tutor when we need to fill in when our volunteer tutors cannot make it, etc. You would have to feel very comfortable tutoring children ages 6 and up, and helping with general homework, test study, and classroom projects. Also, this is a laid-back yet professional and fulfilling intern experience. You would be welcome to start accompanying us on Field Trips, and additionally, helping us with fund raising events, if you choose to do so…:)
Please e-mail us if you are interested, and we will be conducting interviews next week…We really look forward to hearing from you! (An application and basic volunteer screening will also be required, at no charge to you.) Thanks so much!
