The Internship

The East Harlem School at Exodus House is seeking college students interested in exploring the field of teaching to intern at our mandatory summer enrichment program for middle school students. Interns will be a part of all aspects of the school including the academic and athletic program, field trips, and extracurricular activities. Summer interns teach small classes of 6-8 students and should be prepared to show considerable initiative and leadership as they juggle multiple responsibilities, interact with youth in and out of the classroom, and work closely with the EHS faculty and administration. Summer interns teach math or humanities, an elective class of their choice, and cover sports periods in the afternoon. Intern teachers are responsible for creating lesson plans and assessments and should plan to spend some time in the evenings working on grading or preparing their lessons. Interns must demonstrate a solid academic record and a desire to work with highly motivated youth from East Harlem and the surrounding communities.

By working with The East Harlem School, interns form meaningful relationships with students from East Harlem as well as with other summer interns, who come from top colleges around the country. Interns gain experience as classroom teachers in a setting which is conducive to first-time teaching. Through an intensive orientation, interns learn how to lesson plan and how to create appropriate assessments. They will also have the chance to chaperone field trips each Friday to locations throughout New York.

The dates for Summer Session 2020 are June 15-17 for a mandatory Orientation and then June 29-July 31. Interns are expected to be at work from 8:30am-3:00pm Monday-Thursday and 8:30am-12:00pm on Fridays. 

About EHS

Our mission: The East Harlem School challenges students to develop a balanced physical, moral, and intellectual strength that they will use to adapt to change - and for the final purpose of creating and sharing lives of deep meaning, dynamic actions, and transcendent joy. We are a middle school (grades 4-8) that recruits children from families with low income and the highest values, and we give preference to those who keep to the traditional belief that creative flight can only be sustained by grounded discipline.

Our history: Exodus House has been an anchoring and iconic institution in Harlem since its founding in 1963 by Reverend Dr. Lynn and Mrs. Leola Hageman as a drug rehabilitation center. Due to a heightened concern for the welfare and well-being of the community’s many underserved, at-risk children, Exodus House was converted in 1984 to an after-school and summer program facility. Then, in the fall of 1993, inspired by the steadfast commitment of the Hagemans to the East Harlem community, the couple's sons, Hans and Ivan, opened an independent year-round middle school on the original Exodus House site to better address the critical needs of these children and their families. Today, EHS is chartered by the New York State Department of Education and accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. The East Harlem School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
