Helping refugee parents learn to read food and medicine labels in English. Teaching a low-income mother basic computer skills so she can apply for a better job. Encouraging a young man struggling with difficult pronunciation as he strives to read above a 5th-grade level. Helping an immigrant feel more comfortable speaking the language of her new city.

Interning at Literacy Network can sharpen instructive, managerial, or communication skills while helping local low-income adults, immigrants, and refugees improve basic yet crucial reading, writing, or English skills. Our interns become better prepared for careers that have international reach; they can become better teachers, healthcare providers, business executives, and community leaders. While interning they will enjoy a positive, supportive, diverse environment in which staff, volunteers, adult students, and other interns all work together to make our adult literacy programs welcoming and effective. Training and support are provided to all interns!

Interns are a crucial element to the success of our programs and summer internships are available within two programs this summer: the Community Literacy ESL Tutoring program (Download the flyer here), and Skills in Computers and Literacy for Employment (SCALE) program (flyer). (We also welcome applicants for the fall semester!) All summer internship applicant resumes/cover letters are due by 5pm Sunday, April 9.

Questions? Ms. Shawn Steen, Director of Volunteer Services, shawn@litnetwork.org
