Houston SPCA seeks college interns for summer Critter Camp
Hey college students: Want a summer internship that includes making a difference and puppy snuggles? The Houston SPCA is looking for student teaching interns for its summer Critter Camp program.
The weekly day camps will be held from June 5-August 4, Monday through Friday from 9 am-3 pm, at the Carruth Education Center on Houston SPCA's campus.
During various weeks, campers third-through-eighth grade will enjoy lots of fun activities, like visits to the equine center and adoption center, talks from animal experts like the Houston SPCA veterinary team, exploration into animal cruelty investigations, lessons on animal care, and much more.
You can help guide campers through the world of animal welfare with TEKs-approved curriculum, and show them how to be rescue heroes in their own communities.
And because it's still summer camp, there are also games and crafts on the agenda, too.
This is an opportunity to teach in a classroom setting with certified teachers and support from teen volunteers (the Critter Crew) for 60-plus students weekly. Each week is a different theme, with a different grade level.
You can earn service hours for the assigned weeks as well as a manager's letter outlining your impact and accomplishments during the internship. There is also another highly enviable perk: free cuddles with adoptable pets!
Positions are available to interns who can commit to at least three weeks of camp, and preference will be given to those who can accept additional sessions. There is a limited number of internships available.
