Summer Internship in Rochester

This unpaid internship looks like a great leadership opportunity under the auspices of the Rochester Refugee Resettlement Services organization. (Yes, it could translate into Honors credit. More importantly it will change your life and the lives of young refugees!)

Rochester Refugee Resettlement Services

The purpose of Advancing Refugee Student Educational Opportunities (ARSEO) summer program is to assist Rochester area refugee students with the transition from high school to college. Students will explore many careers and the different types of colleges and universities – from community colleges to large universities. In addition, we guide students through the college application process – including important opportunities for scholarships and financial aid! The ARSEO summer program runs from July 9 to Aug 9, Monday through Friday, 1:00pm -5:00pm. We utilize peer mentors so participants learn directly from college students who recently completed this same process successfully. Mentors are expected to assist the program from 11:30am-5:30pm, which includes prep and group meeting times. Applicants should ideally be able to work for 4-5 days a week throughout the duration of the program.
