Alumni Summer Internship

DCD welcomes applications for its new Alumni Summer Skills Internship, an opportunity for DCD alumni currently in Grade 9 through sophomore year of college to gain valuable work experience in an educational setting over the summer.

Participants will have the opportunity to structure a summer in one of the following areas: Advancement (development, event planning, communications, alumni relations, marketing), Admissions, Horizons (summer learning program for kids from low-income families), Early Education (working with the head of DCD’s primary school), Facilities (helping with summer projects and maintenance), Technology Integration (incorporating technology into the classroom), and Head of School’s office.

DCD is looking for a commitment of 15 hours per week for a six-week period starting mid-to-late June. The configuration of days, hours, and start/end dates will be determined with each student once he or she has been accepted into the program. Thanks to an anonymous donor, the internship will include a modest stipend.
