VISTA Summer Associate Internship
The Arc Jacksonville, Inc. is offering individuals the opportunity to complete a VISTA Summer Associateinternship working with people with intellectual and developmental differences (I/DD). Interns in these positions will be working directly with clients in one of three positions: 1) mentoring young adults with I/DD living in dorm style apartments in an effort to develop skills to live more independently, 2) teaching the culinary arts to adults with I/DD under the supervision of an instructor, or 3) providing support and training to adults with I/DD living independently.
These internships are full-time (40 hrs/week with some evenings and weekends) from June 3, 2019 to August 4, 2019 through the National Service Corps. Interns receive a small stipend to defer their expenses (total of $2,125 paid out biweekly during service) and a Segal Education financial aid award of $1,289 at the completion of service that can be used for future enrollment in college or to pay toward existing student loans.
