Virtual Exchange Internship

Every Saturday,  from January 23rd to April 24th, 2021

Outreach360 is offering a unique two-way language learning internship. With just a two-hour commitment each Saturday for twelve weeks, you will provide our students with the valuable opportunity of practicing their English skills with native and like-native English speakers through interactive activities, games, and lessons. In turn, our students will be able to give back by sharing about their countries, cultures, and traditions with you in small-group Spanish conversations.

SERVICE

Children across Latin America are eager to learn English, an invaluable and widely inaccessible skill. As an Outreach360 intern, you will have

the unique opportunity of being one of the first people to spark a love of learning English for beginner-level students and at no cost to them or their families. Each week you will be provided with a new set of English resources geared to your students’ level. You may receive a set of presentation slides or be directed to an interactive online English game, but ultimately the goal is for you to get your students engaging with you and each other in English.

LEARNING

The second half of your Saturday sessions will be devoted to small-group Spanish conversations. In these conversations, our students will share topics that relate to the culture of their countries. Topics could include geography, food, tourism, health care, agriculture, slangs/expressions, and more. This is an incredible opportunity to practice your Spanish with native Spanish speakers, learn about other parts of the world, and empower our students to give back what they receive by sharing their knowledge with you! 

"The highlight of my remote intern experience was watching my students grow. I saw their confidence expand in ways that honor their voice and show they are leaders in their communities and classrooms. Become an Outreach360 remote intern! You are allowing students to push their own levels of creativity, leadership, and motivation in the classroom. You will feel happiness unlike any other, knowing that your students learned new vocabulary every day and saw their own potential. You make a huge difference in their lives, even without realizing it. Thank you to everyone! I will never forget this opportunity. I have learned so much.

- Amanda Dettmann

Why Outreach360?

You will make a real difference. English is a highly sought-after skill for our students and their communities, and opportunities to learn from native and near-native English speakers are few and far between, not to mention costly. We can guarantee that taking time out of your week to introduce English to Outreach360 students will make a real difference.

You will receive an authentic cultural experience. Each week, you will be learning more about the countries our students are from. Through interactive materials, such as images and videos, alongside your students' knowledge, you will be receiving a truly authentic cultural experience.

FAQs

Am I eligible to participate in the internship?


Outreach360's internship has been specifically designed for high school students (Grades 10-12 only) and college students that enjoy working with and serving children and youth. We also welcome anybody who is post-secondary that has an interest in learning Spanish and a desire to make a difference. You will need to be proficient using Zoom, but we are happy to offer pre-internship training to ensure you are prepared. We also ask that you raise and/or donate a one-time program donation of $500. We will provide a fundraising page and resources to help you be successful in raising those funds.




How long is the internship?


The internship runs for twelve weeks total, beginning on January 19th and ending on April 23rd. The internship takes place every Saturday for two hours, at a time slot of your choosing (9:00 to 11:00 AM ET or 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM ET).




What is the cost to participate in the program?


As part of the registration process, we ask all of our interns to raise or donate a minimum program donation of $500 USD prior to participating in the 12-week internship. A $100 donation is required upon registering as a good faith deposit and the remaining program donation must be raised or donated by November 30th. Each intern will receive a personal donation page and family and friends are invited to contribute. All donations are tax-deductible for U.S. taxpayers.




How much Spanish do I need to know?


All Spanish levels are welcome. When you complete the registration form, you will have to identify your Spanish speaking skills as Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced/Conversational, and Fluent. Based on your category, we will match you with Outreach360 students whose skills appropriately align with your own, making for a mutually beneficial conversation. Unsure what your Spanish speaking level is? Let us know and we will help you identify it.




How will I benefit from participating in this internship?


In this internship, you will be making a real difference with students in underserved areas of Latin America by empowering them through this unique opportunity. Our students also have a lot to offer by sharing about their own cultures and customs while also helping you practice your Spanish! More than anything, the connections you make will make every day of this internship a truly magical experience. Additionally, Outreach360's virtual impact programs help you to grow in working and serving remotely, an increasingly prevalent skillset.




How will Outreach360 students benefit from my service?


The opportunity to practie with a native and like-native English speaker is an unparalleled service you can offer our students. The time you spend with them will have an incredible impact in their education and inspire them to get excited about English learning. Not only that, but the program donation you raise during your registration process provides this opportunity at no cost to our students or their families.




Will I need to dedicate time outside of the internship to prepare for each session?


There is no requirement to plan in advance for the time with your students other than reviewing the resources provided to you and having them open on your computer ready to use when you connect. If you would like to go above and beyond, you are more than welcome to get more creative and add to your planned sessions.




What will be expected of me throughout the 12 weeks?


We expect you to treat this internship like any other job experience. We expect you to be professional and follow the guidelines we have in place to support and protect you and our students. We also expect you to be in communication if a conflict comes up that would prevent you from meeting your internship expectations.




Why is there a cost to participate in this internship?


Outreach360 is proud to be able to inspire and empower children in Latin America with educational, leadership, and service opportunities at no cost to them or their families. A student's ability to participate in our program regardless of their socio-economic status is crucial to our vision that everybody deserves to reach their full potential. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, meaning that practically all of our funding comes from donations. For this reason, we consider ourselves both a volunteer and fundraising organization. We have always asked that our volunteers contribute to the sustainability of the programs that we host by raising a minimum program donation to help cover program costs. This allows our students to continue to receive opportunities beyond the length of a volunteer's service time. We understand that these are extraordinary times and that fundraising can seem intimidating, but we really encourage our volunteers to think of it as an opportunity to share this experience with others. We also provide a customizable fundraising page with helpful language and tricks to be successful.
