If you have an interest in sustainability or business (or both!) and are looking for an internship for next school year, then Manomet’s U360 program might just be the opportunity you’ve been seeking!
Learn all about this experiential education and professional development program from the Program Manager and past U360 students during this virtual info session. We’ll be meeting over Zoom and all you need is the URL to attend this event from wherever you are (but please register in advance).
U360 is designed to Increase students’ knowledge of environmental issues, practical sustainability, and business management, and prepare them for their future careers. The two-semester internship is 8-10 hours per week; is entirely virtual (and always has been), so students participate from their campuses; and up to 6 students are accepted from each of the four New England states every year.
The U360 internship incorporates applied science, business, and sustainability workshops; career skills training; sustainability assessments of small businesses; and a Capstone project. Specifically, students spend the majority of the program interviewing up to 25 small businesses each about their current practices, and the internship ends with each student creating a Sustainability Action Plan for one business they interviewed and presenting it to a panel of business leaders in a final Capstone Competition. U360 focuses on the skills that employers most seek—communication, teamwork, professionalism, creative problem-solving, and strategic thinking—while giving students a unique professional experience that differentiates them from their peers when entering the workforce and helps them build confidence, develop a professional network, and gain a vast understanding of business operations.

A family is seeking a live-in nanny for the full summer of 2020 (from June through August, with some flexibility on exact dates). They are a family with two working parents and two young girls (8 and 6). They live in NYC but spend summers in Christmas Cove, which is in South Bristol, Maine (closest larger town is Damariscotta). Caretaking would include: playing with them at home and beach (including swimming), playing on rocks, taking them to swim/tennis lessons, reading, writing, playing games, arts and crafts, and the basic cooking/cleaning associated with the children. They are looking for someone who loves children, is interested in their development, and who enjoys lots of outdoor summer activities, especially things associated with the water and boats (kayaking, sailing, rowing). Because this may be a summer without a lot of formal children’s programming / lessons, they need someone with a lot of energy to plan daily activities, outings and games. They are interested in people either in college or with a college or graduate degree, with solid babysitting and / or camp counselor experience. Some training in the field of education or child development is desirable but not required. Must have car.
If interested, please contact Sarah at email@example.com or text 917-929-2494 and let her know you heard about the opportunity from Middlebury.
“It’s such a paradox: how can we plan our lives, careers, or anything else, when things are changing all the time and we have no idea what will happen next month, or even next week?” That’s what author Erin Ewart writes in her latest article in the Careers for Social Impact blog post.
So, how can we balance this need to plan for the future with the very real knowledge that we have no idea what the future holds?
Ewart has some great advice:
- Track your thoughts: try setting aside 5-10 minutes at the end of the day to answer a few quick prompts: (1) What was energizing for me today and why? (2) What was draining for me today and why? (3) How was today overall on a scale of 1-5, and what bigger picture reflections/implications can I take away?
- Plan in smaller chunks: try to focus your planning around the next three months, which seems like about as far out as any of us can reasonably imagine right now.
- Take action & focus on what you can control: If you’re job searching, this might look like taking just 30 minutes to create a target list of organizations or start updating your resume or LinkedIn profile. Remember: one step at a time.
I recently listened to this video series from the authors of Designing Your Life about how to plan during these times – I recommend checking it out! I had two key takeaways, which were things I already knew but were really helpful to be reminded of:
- Set the bar low and clear it often: create small, bite-sized tasks for yourself that build toward your bigger goals. Accomplishing these smaller tasks gives you momentum and motivation to keep going toward those bigger goals, which feel so overwhelming right now.
- Designers build their way forward: we learn through taking action, and we have to get out of our heads and try things. If you’re feeling stuck or stumped about what to do next, DO something. Reach out to someone and ask for their advice, try a small experiment in the direction you’re considering, even get some exercise to clear your mind.
