Students can apply if they are 16-20 years old and live in the city of Chicago (or Cook County). Internships will run 6-7 weeks in Jun-Aug - more information about what the jobs entail and why students should want to apply are all found on the website (and the attached fliers).
Things to note:
- This year's application is entirely online (and is mobile friendly)! We have attached a jpeg (to share on social media) - please use either/both to help promote the opportunity among your students!
- Interviews: Please let students know that they are *required* to attend one of three open interview sessions that will take place on April 24th, 25th or 27th at Mikva Challenge from 4pm-7pm! When they complete the online application, students will be prompted to choose which interview date they plan to attend, but the extra heads up from you cannot hurt.
- Letters of Rec: When students complete the application, they will be asked at the end to enter the email of a teacher/adult willing to write a letter of rec on their behalf. If they enter your email, you will automatically receive an email w/a link to submit your recommendation ONLINE. If you have any students you would like to send a letter for whether they enter your email in that box or not, you can do so at http://www.mikvachallenge.org/2017-summer-application-recommendations/. Note: Last year we received almost 1000 applications for <100 openings - your recommendation can go a long way in making sure your students stand out from the pack! :)
- Deadline to apply: Friday, April 22nd at 5:00pm!
Any questions, please don't hesitate to let me know!
