Tank Elementary School in Green Bay is seeking two responsible and dependable college students to assist with their Recess Program and Sensory Room.  Tank is made up of kindergarten through 5th grade students.  The Recess program involves guiding children engaging in physical activities and play, while teaching them skills to manage their emotions and behaviors.  In addition, interns will provide support for the learning of socioemotional skills in the school’s sensory room, which is available for all students.

The time commitment would be seven hours per week. Although there is some flexibility on the schedule, students are expected to be present for at least two days around the time of recess (12:05-1:05 pm). The final schedule of the internship will be defined after the interns are chosen.  In addition to recess, interns work in other ways at the school (such as assisting in a classroom, lunch break, reading with students, and playing learning games) to earn their 100 hours total for the 3-credit internship.  These are not paid positions, but it is a great internship opportunity.  The Recess Program is flexible environment to get to know some kids and practice your skills.
