Position Description

Interns will be assigned to the SYEP team where they will be able to choose from the following projects:

  1. Service Learning co-facilitator: Twelve 14 & 15 year olds will be engaged in a service learning project for the 6-week paid work experience. Interns will be paired with a lead facilitator, help determine which youth participate in the Service Learning group, and work with this group for 6 weeks to complete 1/2 projects. This option will require a desire to do direct service work with a younger group (14 & 15 year olds), be flexible and willing to go outside or do manual work (painting, minor repairs, fun activities) depending on the project. this project also require the final date of the internship be 8/11.
  2. SYEP Worksite monitor: Interns will work along side a team of summer staff to support our older youth (16-24) who are in more traditional work placements. Interns will be assigned to worksites where they will be responsible for collecting time sheets, trouble shooting workplace issues with youth and employers and placing youth at worksites based on interest, age etc.
  3. Orientation co-facilitator: Interns will be trained in the SYEP orientation procedure and will assist the SYEP team with the on-boarding of youth in their summer work experience. This will require someone who is comfortable in front of big groups (sometimes as large at 50) as well as someone who is detail oriented to get the proper paperwork filled out.

All positions will include some administrative work helping the SYEP team keep the program organized.


Other than the above mentioned characteristics, interns will need to be flexible and communicative.
