WHAT IS THE NEED?
Spend a summer or year with Love Thy Neighborhood, and serve the community through an education internship with City Schoolhouse. The mission of City Schoolhouse is to strengthen children and families by empowering them through active and individualized education, fostering a love of learning, and renewing their community through its people.
City Schoolhouse is a neighborhood private school where students come to learn academic, social, and practical life skills. Class sizes range from 10-15 students with two teachers. City Schoolhouse teaches in developmental age groups, and their teaching is inspired by successful Montessori teaching techniques as well as other best practices for hands-on learning. They incorporate day-to-day practical living skills that their students often do not learn at home in our daily curriculum.
A Year Long Internship with City Schoolhouse would look like serving as an Assistant Classroom Teacher, helping with individual and small group instruction, supporting the lead teacher in the classroom, and possibly even leading the students in some specialized instruction. This would simply be teaching the students about an area where you already have interest and skill such as cooking, music, art, sports, or computer skills.
Summer Interns will need to have a high amount of flexibility as they seek to assist City Schoolhouse’s teachers with larger summer class sizes. They will have the opportunity to help with the management of the children while also investing in them and building meaningful relationships with them.
