Are you a SUNY Geneseo student interested in gaining internship credit and experience?

Internship Job Description: Cultures Learning TOGETHER, Inc. is a non-profit charitable organization that aims to provide literacy education to ESOL families in our community, while also providing the opportunity for our interns to develop as citizens of the world, experience other cultures, gain teaching experience and practice Spanish as a second language.

TOGETHER is a win-win program. All its participants (community members and interns) learn from each other.

We are planning to work face to face starting in the fall 2021 (pending Coronavirus status). Please take into consideration that adjustments will happen in this transition.

We are looking to hire 9 new interns with the commitment to work with us for a minimum of two semesters (fall 2021 and Spring 2022). The objective is that in fall 2021, the new interns will have the opportunity to team up with the tutors who have been working with us for the last two semesters. This will be a training semester to allow them to learn about the methods we use and interact with the members of our community (our students) to be ready to work independently during the spring of 2022. This is the reason why it is important that the new interns commit a minimum of two semesters (fall 2021 and spring 2022).
