Do you have a passion for working with students? An internship position is available for college juniors, seniors and graduate students to assist guidance counselors and work with local high school students through the fall semester of 2018.

The position is made available to the Scott County Community Foundation through a program funded by Lilly Endowment. The Community Foundation Internships (CFI) program is part of Lilly’s goals to help build healthy Indiana community foundations and to provide college students with real-life work experiences.

The Scott County Community Foundation is seeking a student to work 10-15 hours per week during the summer to assist guidance counselors at Austin and Scottsburg high schools with administration and projects. The intern will also work 18-20 hours per week during the fall semester to assist the high schools with counseling students on career and college plans, coordinate job shadow and internship opportunities as well as college/career fairs, assist 21st Century Scholars with requirements and more.

A major in education, sociology, psychology or counseling is a plus, as is a background with youth services. The position will start in June 2018. Pending funding, the position may extend to the spring 2019 semester.

The internship is a paid position, with a salary of $13 per hour. Students must be enrolled part- or full-time at an Indiana college or university, and non-traditional college students (adults who have returned to school) are encouraged to apply. Applications/resumes will be due Friday, May 4.

A complete job description is available by contacting Charlotte Boswell at charlotte.boswell@scottcountyfoundation.org. You may also call 752-2057, or stop in the office at 60 N. Main St., Scottsburg.
