Dept. of Child Development – Fieldwork Community Partnership Applicants Wanted!

 

We are searching for CSUDH interns with unique ideas and creative lesson plans that can help us meet the needs of our K-12 students. We believe that kids, especially those who are disadvantaged, often feel that they aren’t in control. And given the impact that COVID-19 has had on our youth, in the 2022-2023 school year we are especially focused on reminding them that they can control their environments, starting with their bodies and rippling outward. If you think this might align with your career goals and you are interested in assisting our Program Leaders, then we’d love to talk to you about joining us at one of our partnered schools!

Days/Hours:

Based on your location preference and the needs of that site, days/hours typically range between Monday and Friday from 3-6 PM.

Compensation:

This internship is an unpaid position, but paid employment may be available at the end of the semester.
