Lekha is Recruiting Interns for Summer 2014

Lekha Internships

Lekha Writing Center teaches youth to write creatively, using non-traditional methods, fun activities, and an encouraging environment to help students overcome writer’s block. We will be holding summer camps from June to August all over the Bay Area (24 locations total) and are looking for several high-school age volunteers and college-age interns to assist our staff at our camps and in our office this summer.

We will provide community service hours for the high-school volunteers and a choice of either $10.15/hour or college credit for college students. Lunch and any work-related travel expenses will be reimbursed for both volunteers and interns.

Classroom Aides: Assist teachers with summer camp classroom activities, supervising recess and lunch, and setup, lesson prep, and cleanup for camps.

Publishing House Interns: Assist publishing house staff with typing, editing, and formatting books for print. Graphic design projects may also be available during the summer for any interns who are artistically inclined.

Administrative Interns: Assist with office duties such as answering phones, walk-in customer service, scheduling and making appointments, running errands, etc.

Web Publishing Interns: Assist our webmaster with updating company blog and other online publishing tasks. Prior experience using WordPress a plus.

Please send your resume, your availability, the area in which you would prefer to work (i.e., East Bay, South Bay, Peninsula, etc.), the position you are most interested in, and a 1-2 paragraph cover letter about yourself and why you are interested in joining our team this summer to
