Internship Description: The Tutor Counselor Intern (TC Intern) Program is designed to introduce college and graduate students to professions in education, counseling and social justice. The internship provides them with hands-on experience working with a very diverse student body from low-income families.  TC Interns work closely in their demonstrated areas of interest with experienced educators, faculty and administrators.  They assist faculty in academic classes, design and teach elective classes, tutor students during evening study sessions and assist dorm heads and staff with student supervision. TC Interns play a key role in running the extracurricular activities organized for the afternoons and weekends.  Each TC Intern is assigned a core group of students which they will mentor, follow and evaluate their academic progress and successes. TC interns arrive five days before the students and receive intensive training.All TC Interns live in dormitory rooms in the midst of the students.  They assist in supervising the dorms under the supervision of experienced dorm heads.
