teacher with students

Teach Central Oregon is excited to partner with summer learning opportunities like, Elk Meadow’s Brain Camp. Brain Camp has welcomed five summer interns from the Teach Central Oregon project to work as classroom assistants from August 1-18th. The five interns earn a stipend and are enrolled in a 1-credit course at Central Oregon Community College (COCC) as part of their summer experience. Adriana, Yannely, Noemi, and Melissa are high school students at Bend Senior High School and Mountain View High School and Liz will be a second-year student at COCC in the fall. All five interns are interested in exploring career opportunities in teaching.

Teach Central Oregon has partnered this summer with the Kiwanis Summer Reading Program, Redmond School District’s Extended School Year and Camp 9 programs, and the Jefferson County 509-J School District’s Acceleration Camps to offer a total of 25 students summer internship opportunities in teaching!
