The InterExchange FoundationChristianson Fellowship awards up to $10,000 to young Americans who are passionate about helping communities abroad thrive and are eager to learn about the local culture. Fellows identify a project or an organization working on an issue they care about, and with the support of the Christianson Fellowship, contribute their skills and passion to that endeavor for at least six months on-location abroad. This intercultural experience is a meaningful way to help others, improve skills, and gain insight about another culture.
How does it work? The volunteer project must be outside of the U.S. and conducted in-person at the host location. The project duration is typically at least 6 months in-person on-site.
The next application deadline is coming up on March 15 and interested students can apply online.
Lisa Heyn, Grants Coordination Director (212) 924-0446 would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the Fellowship.
They have been actively working on the child care bill which was recently released, and this is the year that Let’s Grow Kids is working to secure public financing for a statewide child care system! The folks on their grassroots organizing teams are reaching out to campuses to engage students in their advocacy efforts, and want to work with you, Midd students!
They’re also coordinating with the College on a few other child care initiatives happening right here in our own community of Addison County. If you are interested in early childhood development, this is the summer internship for you!
From recent graduate, Maya Saterson ’22 – Consortium for Energy Efficiency
“I graduated last year as a Conservation Psychology major and now work for Kira Ashby (’05) at the Consortium for Energy Efficiency. I remember meeting with you a few times and I had Jon for ENVS401 and he was my second thesis advisor.
For students who would be eligible for the CCI Summer Funding, we have two summer internships (see internships on Handshake.)
For recent or almost grads (’22, ’22.5, ’23) looking for a job in the Boston area (or potential to be remote), we also have one, entry level, full-time job opening on our Residential team. The description is on Handshake.
I started at CEE as an intern Summer 2021 using the CCI funding and came back as a program assistant this summer. I would be happy to chat with any students who are interested or want to network or who are looking for direction.
We have also posted all to Handshake. Please see those postings for job descriptions and you can reach out to Maya Saterson (she/her), Program Assistant, Center for Equity and Energy Behavior, Consortium for Energy Efficiency at 978-972-5502 | msaterson[at]cee1.org, www.cee1.org“
From the coordinator for the Everybody Wins! Vermont mentoring program at Mary Hogan:
Everybody Wins is a literacy based mentoring program which matches local community members with elementary school students to read together once a week.
We’ve only opened the program to two grades this year as we work to rebuild the program after the closure caused by COVID19. Even so, they still have around 30 kids on their waitlist and would really love to match a few more of them this year.
Mentoring with Everybody Wins is a great chance for students to get some hands-on volunteer experience with school aged kids and MANY of the kids who have applied have expressed a preference for a college age mentor.
They’re mostly matching 3rd graders right now. Mentors can choose between Tuesday or Thursday for their reading day and 3rd graders meet with their mentors from 12-1pm.
They’re nearing the cutoff date for when they can no longer have new mentors start this year so students who are interested would want to apply within the next week or so to allow time for their application to be reviewed.
