Youth Team, Rosie’s Girls Program Intern 2022-2023
Vermont Works for Women’s Youth Team is seeking an intern during the 2022-2023 academic year to support our Rosie’s Girls programming for middle school girls.
Rosie’s Girls Summer Camps are week-long trades and STEM exploration day camps for middle school girls*. At Rosie’s Girls, participants are introduced to career fields that are non-traditional for their gender through hands-on learning in a supportive and empowering environment. In addition to hands-on technical learning, Rosie's Girls includes a social and emotional curriculum known as "Power Skills”. We have three camp themes – Build, Weld, and Explore (STEM focus).
Rosie’s Girls Afterschool is the same curriculum and approach as our summer camps, adapted for use in afterschool programs. We work with schools around Vermont to run Rosie’s Girls throughout the school year, including our flagship program at Winooski Middle School. Schools choose their theme based on available space and equipment.
*Rosie's Girls welcomes into our program anyone who identifies as a girl regardless of assignment at birth. Our programs also welcome youth who are non-binary or gender expansive who are comfortable in a girl-centered space.
Over the course of the school year or semester, the youth team intern will:
- Assist with the development and creation of Power Skills, our unique social/emotional learning curriculum for Rosie’s Girls
- Depending on scheduling, assist with running a local Rosie’s Girls afterschool program in Chittenden County
- Assist with purchasing, organization and maintenance of Rosie’s Girls project supplies
- Assist with program evaluation data (inputting and synthesizing participant survey results)
- Help Youth Team gather input from middle school youth about Rosie’s Girls projects and curriculum topics that feel relevant and interesting to them (surveys, focus groups)
This internship can be remote, onsite at our office in Winooski, VT, or a combination of the two. The internship will be 5 to 10 hours per week depending on the intern’s scheduling and academic requirements. A computer is provided. The internship is unpaid, but eligible for academic credit.
