Looking for Summer Employment & Volunteer Opportunities?

Check out the CyberGirlz & CyberHigh Technology Camps

 

Please consider taking time out of your busy schedule to not only improve the knowledge and skills of these campers, but also your own!  Note:  eligible applications will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis – so, get them in ASAP!

What are CyberGirlz & CyberHigh?

 

CyberGirlz is a FREE camp designed for incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls who are interested in learning more about technology.  It is a day camp that is two full days (8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) the third or fourth weeks in July.

 

CyberHigh is an overnight camp for incoming 9th through 12th grade girls.  Campers spend two days working on a project that uses technology to solve problems.  They also participate in recreational activities.

 

Why should you get involved? 

 

It’s not only a great opportunity for the girls who attend, but also a great opportunity for you to:

 

  • Learn or enhance your technical skills
  • Gain experience with middle school girls
  • Make contacts with IT professionals and other teachers
  • Experience builder for your resume
  • Have fun while making a positive impact

 

Consider applying as an instructor, mentor, or camp assistant.

 

  • Instructors will be responsible for developing fun, engaging, interesting activities for the above listed topics and instructing campers (assistance will be provided by ITSCM faculty). 
  • Mentors will be assigned to groups of campers to assist them throughout the day and to serve as ambassadors who promote IT careers (which would mean promoting preparation for those IT careers).  
  • Junior Mentors (ages 14 - 18) will serve as peer ambassadors to assist campers throughout the day and talk about their experiences working with similar technologies. 
  • Camp assistants will help with daily camp functions like:  registration, volunteer management, snack set up, etc. 

All positions will be supported by the camp director.  There is very little you’ll need to do other than show up, follow directions, and have fun!

 

The camp budget includes a limited number of paid positions.  Applications for these will be taken on a first come, first serve basis.  However, we will accept all of the volunteers we can get.
