Summer 2018 Paid Internship at Yleana Leadership Foundation

About the organization:

The Yleana Leadership Academy, the flagship program of the Yleana Leadership Foundation, is a residential summer academy which serves rising high school seniors in urban areas (Baltimore, Boston/North Shore of MA, NYC, and Philadelphia) and seeks to close the achievement gap through a three-week transformative intervention summer SAT experience on a college campus. They also help students develop higher order/critical thinking skills through their Entrepreneurship class, which culminates in a one-day startup fair with entrepreneurs from all over the world advising the students all day until their crowning faceoff – a Shark Tank competition.

Yleana campers are typically low-SES, of color, and first-generation college students; all attend on full scholarship. Besides studying for the SAT, being part of Issues and Entrepreneurship classes, campers enjoy a traditional summer camp experience (complete with campfires and S’mores!) while becoming a part of a welcoming and introspective camp community. One of the greatest compliments we have received came from a student who had been in foster care and had faced significant obstacles at home who told us that Yleana was the first place she felt safe, where people truly cared about her.

In 2017, our average score improvement in a 3-week period was 160-180 points on the SAT. To learn more about them, check out their promotional video (which gives the look and feel of an Yleana experience):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzrQKbI37jg

The Yleana Leadership Academy is interested in recruiting both grads and undergrads for a transformative SAT summer camp which is part SAT boot camp, part higher order thinking skills development, part leadership academy, part on-campus college experience, and part traditional summer camp. They are looking for people who would be willing to work hard and have an amazing time creating a summer camp experience for kids. It’s a ton of work but a LOT of fun!

They’re hiring for four different positions within their organization this summer; click the title below for more information about that internship.

Students get room and board for the duration of the summer as well as receiving a stipend between $1400-3500 (depending on position, experience, and year in school) for the two-month commitment – from June 16 – August 13, 2018as well as the opportunity to continue working through the end of August at one of our Follow-up Programs at$25/hr.

Interested in applying?

There are 70-100 students per class. Teachers and tutors are urgently needed to give more individual attention to students. The first goal is to see that these youth can get high marks on the National Examination so that they can get a scholarship to Makerere, Uganda’s best university. Second goal is to ignite a passion for learning.

Experienced teachers wanted to mentor overwhelmed Ugandan teachers.

NEPAL: Alternative to Trafficking

Spanish helpful but basic Spanish skills okay.

PERU: Tutoring

Families flock from the altiplano to the cities looking for work. There is none so their kids shine shoes to feed the family. Tutor kids that were recently street kids and help them with their homework. Help them make a new life for themselves. Spanish helpful but not mandatory. The kids will teach you!

GHANA: After School Tutoring & Enrichment Program

At the edge of the capital, when father goes out to sea fishing and mom works at the beach drying the fish, many kids skip school.
