This internship will directly serve High School students in South Phoenix.
This service internship will address the need for quality educators and mentors for the youth in South Phoenix. Many of these students come from low-income families, who cannot afford tutoring and other recreational activities- outside of school. Many of our students also come from Spanish-speaking households, where the language barrier makes homework help difficult at home.
The interns who choose to help through this Service Internship will be providing mentorship and quality time to our students. With student/teacher ratios at an all-time high, many students are at risk of "falling through the cracks." Interns will also be providing a huge benefit to the teachers and staff at AAEC. Together, we all strive to make a difference in the lives of young students- who will one day be the leaders of our future.
