About the Internship

Duties:

Interns will have the opportunity to work directly with students. It will place interns with mentors in specific classrooms for teaching assistantship, small group instruction, and one-on-one tutoring. The intern chosen to assist in the Special Education classroom will be a vital asset in keeping students active both physically and cognitively.

Population Served:

The students at Champion Schools are primarily Hispanic and African American students who come from low income demographics. We have two locations, one is in South Phoenix and the other is in Chandler. Both campus' are K-8 charter schools. 

Our South Mountain campus located in Phoenix is seeking interns primarily in grades 5th-8th, with a possibility of K-4th. 

The Chandler Campus is seeking interns primarily for grades K-2nd and Special Education. 

Th San Tan Campus is seeking interns for any grade (K-8th ) or specialty (Math, Science, Reading, Writing, Early Childhood, Special Education, or even Athletics).

Community Need:

Our schools are located in South Phoenix and Chandler. We are a Title 1 school with large classroom sizes. Any assistance in the classroom is really beneficial to our students as there is more availability to work with small groups instead of large group instruction. Our students would also benefit from being in contact with students from ASU as they can serve as role models and examples of higher education.

  

Community Impact:

Students in a Title 1 school will benefit from having tutoring, mentoring, and academic skill-building services provided to them from the interns. Due to large classroom sizes interns will also provide more academic assistance to students that are struggling in the classroom.  

The younger grades K-2 will benefit from having one-to-one mentoring in both reading and math interventions. Interns will have the opportunity to create and implement lessons, work with small reading/math groups, and assist in field trips and class projects. This assistance will provide the educational enrichment, and assistance that our students are lacking in a Title 1 environment due to large class sizes.
