Applications being accepted for KIPP Academy internships

Students interested in a career in education should consider applying for the KIPP Academy internship over D-Term.

Spending time at KIPP Academy in Boston provides Lawrence students interested in education careers with several important takeaways, including exposure to an innovative system of education, experience with education of inner-city children from diverse minority backgrounds and observation of various teaching styles and techniques.

Hours would be the same as faculty hours: 7 a.m.–5 p.m., Monday–Friday and evening work as needed. Students are expected to do any and all work supportive of the teachers, including work with individual and small groups of students, but also copying class materials and grading classwork.

Deadline to apply is Oct. 24. Visit LUworks for more information and application instructions.
