Newcomer Youth Summer Academy Operations Intern
New York City (United States of America)
Since 1999, the IRC has developed partnerships with New York City public schools, community-based organizations and local colleges and universities to support the positive development of refugee youth and their communities in New York City. The Education and Learning Program provides year round programming working directly with refugee youth, their parents and families, and their schools.
Scope of Work:
The Newcomer Youth Summer Academy (NYSA) is a six-week program focusing on preparing newly arrived refugee youth to succeed at their grade level in the New York City public school system. Up to 130 students from ages 5 – 21 from over 20 countries will participate in academic, creative arts, physical education, and life skills classes. Field Trips are held on Fridays.
The NYSA Operations Intern will assist the Education & Learning Manager to oversee operation of the Newcomer Youth Summer Academy and support the Academy’s daily needs. Based at the IRC-NY main office but working as needed on-site at the Summer Academy, the NYSA Operations Intern will support communication and coordination between the Summer Academy site staff and the main office. The Operations Intern will focus primarily on external relations, donor reporting, and personnel support, but overall provide logistical and organizational support to the Education & Learning Manager, assist with key management responsibilities, and help to ensure that special projects and events are a success.
This is an unpaid internship.
