Teen Summer Internship Program

The Hilliard Free Lunch Summer Camp for Kids welcomes low income children from culturally diverse backgrounds to join us daily for friendship, recreation, special activities and a nutritious, free lunch.  They will also learn business concepts from leaders in the community and actively participate in a child-run restaurant gaining invaluable entrepreneurial, service, and leadership skills.

Serving Our Neighbors (SON) Ministries is seeking Teen Interns to act as positive role models while playing with and building relationships with the children we serve at this camp. In addition, the Interns will support the staff with camp operations including camp set up, clean up and running camp activities.

Teen Interns must commit to a minimum of FOUR weeks (Monday-Friday) of their choice between June 14th – July 28, 2017.  We also ask them to create a blog post about their experience and lead one activity.  Training will be provided.

This is an unpaid Teen Internship position. However, this is an amazing opportunity to work with children while developing leadership, organizational and people skills. Interns will track and receive a signed copy of internship hours for National Honor Society, service clubs and college or employment applications. Upon successful completion of the internship, teens will also receive an individualized letter of recommendation.

Additional information about Teen Internships and instructions on how to apply can be found on the home page of our website – http://son-ministries.org/
