The Netter Center for Community Partnerships at the University of Pennsylvania is hiring several part-time summer interns to help in our College Access and Career Readiness Program. The College Access and Career Readiness program runs a six-week summer institute for rising seniors and sophomores. The summer institute teaches students the skills they will need to successfully matriculate to college, such as computer skills (with a focus on navigating school websites and typing), goal setting, finding colleges and essay writing.  Additionally, the Summer Institute takes the students on college trips to a diverse selection of schools on the east coast (everything from the Pennsylvania Culinary Institute to NYU).   Interns for the Summer Institute will lead programming for small groups of students and mentor students in the college search.

This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for experience mentoring students or peer leadership.  Students in the Summer Institute are motivated and passionate and you have the unique opportunity of helping them achieve their goals.   Interns will be needed Mon- Thu from 12:00- 4:00 and all day on Fridays (Fridays are college trip days!).  The Summer Institute runs during all of July and the first two weeks of August.  Interns will be paid $10/ hr.  If interested, please contact Meg Hess-Homeier at 215-300-4354 or send your résumé and cover letter to
