Work in each Kids Club site, implement activities and games at each site, assist supervisors and other employees at the Kids Club sites, interact positively with children and their families while on-site, assist with Kids Club curriculum, attend meetings regularly.


My biggest accomplishment with my internship was making connection with the children when I went on site. I regularly went to the six different Kids Club sites and I was able to interact with different children each time which made me able to develop relationships and connections with the children.

What advice would you give?

My advice for future students is to, ask questions when you have them. Don't be afraid to ask questions because they will help you learn. Go into your first day with a positive attitude, that will make their impression of you positive.
