Deadline May 15, 2017

Mission

The GO Project shapes the futures of low-income New York City public school children by providing critical academic, social, and emotional support starting in the early elementary years. GO provides year-round educational and family support services to children who are performing below grade level and equips them with the confidence and skills needed to succeed at school, at home, and in life.

Activities

Interns will also be participating in rigorous daily professional development sessions where Echoing Green’s book, Work on Purpose, will be used to help them discover and enhance their passions (HEART) and their talents (HEAD) to become change-making leaders in their community (HUSTLE). A strong social justice-centered curriculum and required readings will form the core framework for the internship. At the end of the summer, interns will have completed a portfolio with work from daily classroom and professional development sessions, co-led a professional development session, gained leadership skills, and developed a culminating Hustle project that they will showcase for other GO Project interns, staff members, board members, and community supporters.
