Do you enjoy working with youth? Are you considering a career in teaching? Would you like to earn a little extra cash this summer?
If you answered yes to one of these questions, then the Noyce Summer Internship Program maybe for you.
The VCU National Science Foundation funded Noyce Initiative is sponsoring the Noyce Summer Internship Program to pique STEM majors’ interest in pursuing a career in teaching. As an intern, you will be given an opportunity to work with middle and/or high school students and teachers through one of three STEM pipeline and outreach programs. Interns will receive a $500 stipend in exchange for your commitment to work for one week (40 hours) during the summer with one of the programs.Interns will assist with lesson preparation and delivery. We believe this relatively low stress exposure will serve as a positive experience to begin building interest in a career in teaching.
Please see the link below to apply for the program. Applications are due by May 31st.
Know someone passionate about becoming an urban teacher ?
Richmond Teacher Residency (RTR) is an innovative partnership between Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and Richmond Public Schools (RPS). Coordinated by the Center for Teacher Leadership (CTL), RTR recruits, trains, and supports teachers—preparing them to meet the distinct challenges of urban school systems. Residents learn side-by-side with top RPS teachers for an entire year while earning a master’s degree from VCU. RTR’s support doesn’t end at graduation either: our graduates receive one-on-one training from a content-specific coach throughout the first two years of their teaching career. In addition to this strong preparation and support, teaching residents receive:
- $24K stipend during the residency year; additional $4K for science and math candidates
- special reduced tuition rate
- 100% placement record post-residency with full benefits and salary as a full-time RPS teacher
- support for National Board Certification after teaching for 3 years
Application deadline: March 15, 2016
