NEMPAC Teen Interns are an integral part of helping the classes run smoothly while building their leadership skills, and communication and organizational skills while gaining experience working with young children!
Interested students for Winter or Spring placement must fill out the application by the Dec 11th, 2023 deadline.
Interns will run warm-ups and games, help with set up and break down, lead parts of lessons, and more! The duties of each intern will vary based on their strengths and interests as well as the classroom needs. They will be considered a “mentor” to the students and are expected to be good examples throughout the session while upholding NEMPAC’s core values of Collaboration, Creativity, Love, Excellence, and Equity. Teens can apply to be an intern in our fall, winter, or spring class sessions, as well as various workshops over the summer.
About the Teen Intern Program: Beginning in Summer 2022, NEMPAC created the Teen Intern Program, providing teens in 7th – 12th grade the opportunity to act as teaching assistants in our youth arts programs during the school year and summer. With the option to earn volunteer or school credit hours, or a small stipend, teens also build their leadership skills, and communication and organizational skills, while gaining experience working with young children!
