About the InternshipDuties:
Serve as a positive role model for youth ages 5 to 18: tutor kids with homework and reading, learn plans and positive play activities; teach skills that instill confidence and self esteem including manners, respect, and problem solving; mentor kids to inspire their hearts and minds toward great success.
Under-priviledged youth ages 5 to 18 in the South Phoenix area.
School and community based After-School Programs in South Phoenix are limited leaving countless kids without a safe and supportive environment to do homework, organized play activities, and focused instruction. The community has a high percentage of non high school graduates leaving the children with little to no support or assistance.
Studies show that school performance, social behavior, self esteem, and attitude improve dramatically when at-risk children attend an effective after-school program. Crime, incarceration, and gang activities are significantly reduced when these young scholars are getting the support they need.
