Go Getter Summer Internship

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

The GO Project summer internship is an opportunity for high school students to learn and develop leadership skills while working with GO Project students in academic and/or enrichment classes. During the five-week GO Summer program, interns will be supporting instruction in one of our K – 4 classrooms under the guidance of a Head Teacher or Enrichment Teacher. Interns will work in small groups or one-to-one within the classroom to help students complete projects, remain focused, and build confidence as learners. Morning interns will provide support in an academic classroom setting for math and literacy. Afternoon interns will provide support in a particular enrichment activity, such as art, theater, ballet, hip-hop, capoeira, yoga, and more.

Interns will also be participating in rigorous daily professional development sessions where a strong social justice-centered curriculum and required readings and assignments 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.
