Interested in education?  Would you like to become a more involved volunteer in New Haven Public Schools?  We are currently accepting applications for the Dwight Hall Public School Intern Program.

The role of the Dwight Hall Public School Intern (PSI) is to serve as a liaison between a New Haven public school and the Yale community by strengthening current volunteer efforts in the schools and by finding new ways to match resources at Yale with the needs of the school.  Interns might provide the school with individual tutors, professional development for teachers, or special one-time programs to enrich current lessons.  Interns work closely with contacts at the school to discuss the role of Yale volunteers and ways that they may extend and enrich opportunities for New Haven students.

Previous interns have found volunteers fluent in Urdu for elementary school students from Pakistan, arranged performances by an African dance troupe for a middle school African history class, advised the production of a school play, and planned a college application information panel and campus field trip for high school juniors
The internship is a two year commitment, and interns are paid hourly (if work study eligible) or given a stipend at the end of the semester (if non-workstudy).  The requirements of the job include at least four hours of work in the school a week, and mandatory monthly meetings.

We currently have 16 interns participating in local elementary, middle, and high schools and are looking to hire more for the upcoming year.  Please email This email address is hidden from email harvesters via JavaScript  for an application or if you have any questions.
