Paid Summer Opportunity for College Students (Revised)

For over 30 years, the Adventures in the City program—program of the Christian Activities Council (CAC)– has provided free, high-quality summer programming to Hartford youth residents. The Children’s Defense Fund (a national non-profit organization founded by Marian Wright Edelman) has selected CAC’s Adventures in the City  program as a Freedom School® site for summer 2016. This program will serve approximately 100, low-income students in grades k-3 from Hartford’s North End neighborhoods and will take place at Thirman Milner School in Hartford.  

Currently, CAC is hiring two Site Coordinators and ten Servant Leader Interns to join our dynamic Adventures in the City Freedom School team this summer. These paid, seasonal positions include a unique, all-expenses paid professional development opportunity to participate in a national training at the Children’s Defense Fund Freedom School center in Tennessee.  It might seem a bit early to apply for summer positions, but our first training is scheduled for March. Therefore, we will start the interview process in a couple of weeks!

If you or any students have specific questions about the positions, please don’t hesitate to contact Stacy Lopez,, or (860) 527-9860, or Cori Mackey, CAC Executive Director at (860) 527-9860.
