  17. 17. Internship Commitment Commitment is for at least one year, and may be renewed upon mutual agreement of site and intern ◦ Undergraduate interns may also choose to continue with their site as a graduate intern if mutually agreeable. Most interns will stay at the same site until they graduate ◦ May request a relocation after one year, but this rarely happens because it would require another site hiring an intern
  18. 18. Ensuring Financial Sustainability Many interns will qualify for food stamps ◦ Find link to apply at: www.fns.usda.gov/snap/applicant_recipients/apply.htm If you are an undergraduate student be sure to apply for financial aid (Pell Undergrad) ◦ Pell will be paid to intern as cash as we receive them ◦ Undergraduate interns may not receive student loans as an intern ◦ Graduate interns may receive student loans in special cases Housing stipend paid directly to landlord is not taxable We strongly advise that student interns do not take a second job. ◦ We have never had a student intern who took a second job who completed their program
  19. 19. Communication with TechMission Your site supervisor is your supervisor, not TechMission ◦ TechMission will avoid getting in the middle of conflict Exceptions ◦ Sites that work student interns more than the required hours impairing their studies ◦ Sites that violate the law or terms of the internship contract ◦ Sites that do not pay their fees to TechMission/City Vision ◦ Sites with programs that end due to financial reasons or that provide no supervision
  20. 20. Site Payments (Work Study & Graduate Interns) Site pays City Vision College $700 (or $1,600 for graduate interns) once an intern is placed on site. Site continues to pay at $700 (or $1,600 for graduate interns) increments on August 15, October 15, January 15, March 15 and May 15 for a total of $3,500/year (or $8,000/year for graduate interns). Site fee is the same regardless of the number of courses an intern takes Because a site is making a financial commitment to provide training and pay your tuition, it is important to complete your year!
  21. 21. Intern Policies Work Study interns and graduate interns work structure ◦ 29 hours as an intern ◦ 16 hours for on site study and lunch breaks (sites may wave on-site requirement for graduate interns) ◦ 45 hours of total time per week (9 hour days) Interns follow sites sick, vacation & holiday policy ◦ If no policy exists, then we recommend that interns get 15 combined sick/vacation days Interns follow site policies unless those policies violate the law or internship contract
  22. 22. Things to discuss with your supervisor  Find out who is your supervisor / go-to person.  If possible establish a regular schedule for serving  Find out what is expected of you – talk about your job description.  Establish who you should go to for help.  Ask what you should do if you’ll be late.  Make sure to trade contact information.  Ask about rules – especially those involving how to interact with other staff and those you’re serving.  Ask what makes a good intern.
  23. 23. A Good Intern is F.A.T. Faithful: Keep your commitments. ◦ Don’t think of yourself as “just” a volunteer. People are depending on you! ◦ If you need to miss a session or will be late, call. Available ◦ Willing to do whatever is needed ◦ Expect to sacrifice Teachable ◦ Ask what people (staff, clients, the community) need instead of assuming that you know ◦ Ask how you can be helpful instead of assuming you know ◦ Be flexible
  24. 24. Outcome Requirements We will provide a web form for interns to complete every 6 months ◦ Estimates are fine as our intent is to minimize the work on your end (1-2 hours) to compile outcomes ◦ Required for continuation in program In the program(s) your intern(s) is/are involved in ◦ Number of program participants ◦ Number of volunteers ◦ End Outcome Estimates: grade promotion, graduation rate, program completion rate, etc.
