A Teen Life Internship is a year-long, paid, part-time internship in the serious business of success. Much as a medical intern would learn the skills of a doctor or a legal intern would be immersed in the culture and strategies of attorneys, a Teen Life Intern is taught how to live well through an in-depth leadership development program that turns teens into the leaders of classrooms.
An Intern works eight to twelve hours each week tutoring, leading a music class, leading an activity class, or managing other teens. But, this work experience is only the beginning. It’s the platform on which an entire leadership development program is built. Each Intern is required to sharpen their skills through a curriculum of job training, life skills trainings, and an extensive college preparation curriculum. Each Intern also goes on professional visits and receives extensive one-on-one coaching and support. The result is a teen who is stretched, challenged, loved, and grown into discovering the dignity of work, a new-found confidence in their abilities, and the sure hope of a college education.
