Military Extension Internships
A new initiative and partnership between the Cooperative Extension System and the Department of Defense has provided the funding for a national, military childcare/youth development internship program. Through this initiative, students and recent graduates will have the opportunity to develop professional skills in childcare and youth development through practical work experience with military children, youth, and families. Interns' compensation will include travel to and from the internship site and housing for the duration of the placement. Interns will be placed on military installations across the United States.
The Military Extension Internship Program will continue to accept applications for its inaugural term through December 7th for placements beginning January 11, 2010. More information and application materials can be found at www.extension.purdue.edu/military, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Application materials for Summer 2010 internships will be available after December 21st.
