Internship in School Counseling Spring 2015

Foxview Intermediate School in East DePere is seeking responsible and dependable college students to assist with our Alternative Lunch/Recess Program.  Foxview is made up of 5th and 6th grade students.  The Alternative Lunch/Recess is a smaller setting for lunch and recess, allowing students to make more connections with peers, connect with adults, practice social skills, and feel included.  Students can play games, talk, or do homework.  The adult supervisors spend time talking with students, playing games with them, and supervising the group as a whole.

The time commitment would be 11:00 am to 1:00 pm two days per week.  In addition, interns work in other ways at the school (like shadowing the school counselor and psychologists, assisting in a classroom, reading with students, leading special activities, and collecting data) to earn their 100 hours total for the 3 credit internship.  These are not paid positions, but it is a great internship opportunity.  Alternative Lunch/Recess is a fun, relaxed environment to get to know some kids and practice your skills.

If you’re interested and would be able to intern for 2 days (lunch periods) per week for the Spring 2015 semester, please contact Professor Georjeanna Wilson-Doenges by email at wilsong@uwgb.edu to receive an application. (Cheryl Crozier, a UWGB alum, is the school counselor and field supervisor for this internship.) All applications are due to Dr. Wilson-Doenges by November 3, 2014. A short list of applicants will be interviewed on November 6th between 9:00 – 12:00.
