My name is Alyssa; I’m the Executive Director of the Yleana Leadership Foundation. I am reaching out to you today in an effort to recruit students for paid summer internships at the Yleana Leadership Academy, which seeks to decrease the achievement gap for low-SES high schoolers from urban areas through SAT score increase. Over 50% of our kids are first-gen and over 95% are of color. For our staff, who are college students and recent college grads, this is way more than just a summer internship - it’s a chance to meet a child who will touch their lives and way of thinking forever. Yleana staff who reflect on their experiences feel their time spent at camp was transformative, eye-opening, and a cherished memory.
Excitingly, this opportunity also pays! Staff get room and board for the duration of the summer as well as receiving a stipend between $2500-3500 AND UP (depending on experience) for the two-month commitment - from June 10 - August 10, 2020 - as well as the opportunity to continue working through the end of August at one of our Follow-up Programs at $25/hr.
The Yleana Leadership Academy is interested in recruiting both grads and undergrads for a transformative SAT summer camp that is part SAT boot camp, part higher order thinking skills development, part leadership academy, part on-campus college experience, and part traditional summer camp. We are looking for people who would be willing to work hard and have an amazing time creating a summer camp experience for kids. It's a ton of work but a LOT of fun!
We’re hiring for three different positions within our organization this summer; click the link below for more information about that position.

Paid at-sea internship opportunity for members interested in deep sea science, ROV technology, video engineering, or acoustic mapping
Hello SACNAS community!
In getting the word out far and wide I am sharing this paid internship opportunity for your members (community college, undergraduate, graduate, or recent grads) to sail on a deep ocean Exploration Vessel Nautilus conducting interdisciplinary expeditions to places never seen before on Earth. Ocean Exploration Trust hosts four types of paid 3-5 week internships this summer/fall in Ocean Science, acoustic Seafloor Mapping, Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Engineering, and Video Engineering.
All expenses are paid traveling to meet the ship and time aboard is funded as you work closely embedded in the expedition team alongside other STEM professionals. Education and outreach are central to the Nautilus Exploration Program and all expeditions stream live 24/7 on www.nautiluslive.org so interns have many opportunities to contribute to storytelling and serve as role models for students and explorers around the world. Students whose intersectional identities are underrepresented in STEM are highly encouraged to apply.
Applications are open now and close January 24th. I hope you can help to share this through your chapter and any other networks to make sure interested SACNISTAs have this cross their path. Interested students can download an application packet and learn more at www.nautiluslive.org/education. Please feel free to contact me with any questions (Megan Cook - firstname.lastname@example.org)
