ISB Summer Internships


Bilingual high school students (rising 10th-12th graders) are invited to apply for unpaid summer internships with ISB Summer’s Language Immersion program! ISB Summer interns will gain hands-on experience in a variety of fields while working closely with a teaching team and with administrative staff. Interns will be exposed to topics in areas such as teaching and classroom management, curriculum and activity planning, communications, program management, and language acquisition.

ISB is seeking interns with strong leadership, problem solving, and communication skills. Interns will be expected to take initiative in the classroom, whether comforting a crying child or leading a transition activity, and to assist teaching teams in planning. The ability to listen and to collaborate with colleagues, both providing ideas and reflecting on outcomes, is essential.

Thank you for your interest in ISB Summer internships. Applications for Summer 2020 internships will open in February 2020.
