Writing & Social Media Intern

As a CYC intern, you’ll gain valuable experience in program management, nonprofit administration, and writing/editing while simultaneously having outrageous amounts of fun. Internships are generally a minimum of 10 hours a week and are unpaid positions. Open internship positions are posted to our blog and advertised at area colleges and universities. To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, two references, and available weekday hours to Kait Polzin

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2019-20 internship. Please check back in Spring of 2020 for next year!


Tutors & Workshop Helpers

Reading Buddies

Afterschool Adventure Book Club // Mon or Wed // 4-5

Reading Buddies love reading and are eager to share their excitement around language and literature while building relationships with their students. Book Club pairs read together and enjoy reading-related activities. Volunteers exhibit patience, encouragement, and a willingness to engage with their student’s interests. A creative writing or teaching background is not required but would be a boon.

Writing Workshop Leaders

Creative Writing Helpers

Afterschool Adventure // M, W // 5-6pm   Amplify // Wednesday // 4:00-5:30   Craft // Wednesday // 6:15-7:45

A total of two volunteers are needed to work closely with our program staff in the creative writing portions of CYC programming. Writing volunteers must be comfortable instructing in a small group setting, and have the ability to draw from their own background in creative writing to help students grow as writers.
