The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula is currently looking for rising high school and college students to be Academic Youth Development Interns!

Summer Interns will work collaboratively with BGCP staff to implement a summer academic and enrichment program for elementary school kids. The program is designed to use hands-on learning to improve students’ school outcomes and their interest in learning.

BGCP internships provide practical experience for job training and college preparation, as well as eligibility for national service awards. While many colleges and employers look for applicants who have expertise in a certain area, they are also seeking individuals who are community-minded and concerned about the world in which they live.


Interns will work collaboratively with the BGCP Directors, credentialed teachers, and staff to implement a summer academic and enrichment program for elementary age youth. The program is designed to give students’ academic enrichment activities to improve their school outcomes and their interest in learning. The internship will provide an opportunity to experience first-hand work with youth in an educational setting. This is a great role for someone who is considering education as a possible career.
