Interns with collaborate with staff to design programming, organize social events, plan fieldtrips, and facilitate opportunities for YHC friends to integrate into the Middlebury community. Daytime transition programming runs from 8:30-4:00pm, Monday-Friday, with occasional evening or weekend events.
