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.
