Ongoing internship opportunities are listed below:
|Title||High School Coordinator|
|Start Date||TBD- Summer 2013|
|Employee Status||Fellowship – At Least 1 Year|
|Reports to||Programs Coordinator|
The Timmy Global Health High School Coordinator position is an unpaid volunteer experience intended to supplement a student’s educational experience with skills relative to volunteer coordinating, student engagement, and global health. This year-long fellowship will provide the unique experience of working with at least ten high school groups (Brebeuf Jesuit, Carmel, Cathedral, International School of Indiana, Myers Park (Charlotte, NC), North Central, Park Tudor, and Zionsville). Many new chapters have expressed interest, so it is likely that the number of chapters will increase by the start of the 2013-2014 academic year.
Throughout the school year the HS Coordinator is responsible for leading a “mini” high school conference (August/September) and any other meetings with all high school chapters, individual chapters, and/or chapter advisors as needed. Some chapters may need more guidance than others and face-to-face meetings allow for an opportunity to discuss upcoming events and share plans and concerns. The HS Coordinator is responsible for ensuring the chapters leaders have a successful year, but is not responsible for managing each chapter on its campus.
The HS Coordinator is in charge of leading one trip to Guatemala during the month of June. This includes selecting applicants, planning the trip itinerary, leading pre-trip meetings, educating the students before and during the trip about social issues in Guatemala, and leading the trip to Guatemala from start to beginning with the support of Timmy staff.
The HS Coordinator is also responsible for serving as a liaison between the high school chapters and the Indy Timmy office. The HSC will be asked to attend regular meetings in the Timmy office and to maintain consistent communication with the Programs Coordinator in order to ensure that there is a strong, healthy relationship between the high school chapters and Timmy staff.
Responsibilities would include:
- Organize the annual service-learning trip to Guatemala for the students who have been active throughout the year. This will require two pre-trip meetings– one to include parents and trip logistics; the second to allow students to get to know each other, learn about stove building, and review basics of cultural competency.
- Help to recruit volunteers for Timmy Takedown, IU Health’s Gardeon on the Go, and other local events.
- Maintain communication with all students, advisors, trip participants, and parents of trip participants.
- Keep high school resources fresh, fun and up-to-date
- Speak at Timmy High School Chapters as needed based on chapter requests
- One all-expense paid trip to Guatemala in June with HS volunteers
- Traveling with high school students to empower them to serve on an international level
- Empowering high school students to advocate and fundraise on their campuses
Term of Service:
June 2013 – end of June 2014 (minimum)
- Resides in or around Indianapolis, Indiana
- The availability to travel to Guatemala in June of 2014
- A good communicator, ability to share information with many via email, phone and meetings
- Responsible, dependable and flexible
- Friendly, and able to cultivate, balance and maintain relationships with students, parents, teachers and Timmy staff.
- A fun and flexible attitude is a must!
