Unpaid Fall 2013 Internship
Mid-August 2013 to June 2014
Big Sister Association of Greater Boston is looking for an intern for our School Based Mentoring (SBM) Department. This is an excellent opportunity for a graduate student interested in human services, gender-specific programming, case management and/or mentoring. This is an unpaid internship.
About School Based Mentoring:
The School Based Mentoring program (SBM) is designed to provide elementary school aged girls with healthy and supportive relationships with caring adult women to help them maximize their full potential. The program is a one-to-one mentoring program. Big and Little Sister matches meet once a week at the girl’s school during her lunch period or after-school program. Matches spend time together doing a variety of activities that help enhance girls’ confidence, competence and caring, while building a relationship.
Responsibilities of the SBM intern consist of conducting assessments of potential Big Sisters (1.5 hour interviews), brief assessments of potential Little Sisters, making match recommendations and facilitating match meetings. The intern may also provide case management and match support to already existing matches or newly made matches.
Depending upon schedule and interests, the SBM intern could contribute to the success of either of two specialized programs with the SBM department: our Workplace Mentoring Program, or our Boston College/Franklin Field Program.
Interns who are looking for an opportunity to gain a range of experiences working with girls and women from multicultural populations and who have the desire to work from a strengths perspective will do well on the SBM team.
Skills and competencies required: excellent strong communication and organizational skills; comfort interacting with multicultural populations; detail-oriented; proficiency using Microsoft Office Programs (Word and Excel); openness to learning, ability to prioritize and handle multiple tasks; and the ability to work independently. Travel to and from sites is required. A car is not necessary but very helpful.
