NEW Public Service Externship Program + Parent Volunteers Needed!


Side by Side is offering a Public Service Externship Program to provide Berkeley Carroll 9th-12th graders with an opportunity to learn more about public service.  Externship positions will provide practical work experience, simply by pairing a BC student with a BC parent willing to mentor and allow the student to shadow them in their professional work environment.  Side by Side's Public Service Externships will be offered as a one week volunteer experience (unpaid) from June 15-19, 2015. where a student "shadows" a Berkeley Carroll parent who works or volunteers with a government agency or non-profit organization. 


We are looking for parents that work with a government agency or a nonprofit organization that could volunteer to serve as Parent Field Supervisors (one-week: 6/15/15-6/19/15).  Parents that are on the Board of Directors of a nonprofit can also serve as a Parent Externship Coordinator and assign a Staff Field Supervisor.

Student Externship Applications are due Wednesday 3/11/15 - no exceptions.
