Spring & Summer Job Opportunities
Facilitating Service-Learning Programs
for Middle & High School Students
The Civic Education Project (CEP) at Northwestern University is NOW HIRING exceptional staff for our Spring & Summer 2011 service-learning programs. CEP offers weekend, weeklong and three-week service-learning courses for outstanding middle and high school students during the spring and summer. CEP programs engage motivated students in exploring complex social issues, provide students with hands-on opportunities to examine their role in creating change, and inspire students to take action. This year, CEP will offer programs in Chicago, Baltimore, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, DC, covering topics such as law & criminal justice, politics & urban development, education policy & school reform, public health and civic engagement.
Available Job Opportunities
We are looking for outstanding teachers from public and private schools and universities, service-learning practitioners, other education, youth development and nonprofit professionals, and graduate and undergraduate students. Instructional, residential, and administrative positions are available, ranging from two-day to seven-week sessions. Staff generally receive a cash stipend, room & board and training in service-learning and experiential education. However, the biggest payoff comes from the opportunity to work with bright, motivated students, build community with passionate, dynamic colleagues, and gain valuable experience educating young people about civic engagement and social responsibility.
