Career Opportunities


In addition to the following internships, we always are looking for dedicated mentors.

 

The Clubhouse @ C4K Program Intern (Summer 2018 – part-time, unpaid)

 

Join a community of young people and adults who create, invent and explore together using the latest in technology. The Clubhouse@C4K Intern will serve as a role model to C4K youth members and build positive connections while helping them express themselves through technology. You don’t have to be tech-savvy to be an ideal candidate. C4K will provide the intern training, support and access to learning tools.

 

The intern can build their own skill set while connecting with youth and community volunteers. Prospective university interns will be able to gain hands-on experience and insight in youth development and after-school programming, as well as experience in the daily operations of a small non-profit.

 

This is an excellent opportunity to gain professional skills while building their personal network of contacts.
