Amity Program | Volunteers Needed!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
Amity Committee Co-Chairs for the 2021- 2022 Academic Year
 
The Amity Committee helps coordinate and support six Spanish-speaking interns who come to assist teachers and students for a full school year. This is a year-round position with most work done in the spring (interviewing potential interns and recruiting host families) through summer when host families are confirmed and interns arrive just prior to the start of school. 
 
Other main jobs include:
  • Serve as a coordinator between the Amity interns and the the school administration and teacher mentors. 
  • Act as a school coordinator for Amity International, make sure paperwork is updated and turned in on time
  • Recruit, place interns with, and support host families
  • Recruit, manage and support liaisons (a person who works on the committee to help support individual interns)
 
We will have two open co-chair positions at the end of this school year that will have to be filled as the Amity interns are a critical part of our students Spanish immersion experience.  
 
If you are interested in volunteering to co-chair the Amity Committee or have any questions, please contact our current co-chairs, Sara Henson and Kristen McSherry, at [email protected]
