The Delaware Department of Education is accepting applications for an eight-week summer program for promising future leaders who have a passion for education and want to gain hands-on exposure to policy work.
The program, now in its second year, has been developed specifically for current students, recent graduates and junior teachers as they explore career paths in education and seek exposure to careers in state government. Individuals from all programs of study are welcome to apply. Although teaching experience is not required, preference will be given to outstanding teachers working in Delaware public schools.
The program begins on Monday, June 23, 2014 and ends on Friday, August 15, 2014. This is an unpaid internship.
Participants each will lead individual pieces of work critical to Delaware’s policy agenda. They also will participate in regular sessions with Delaware leaders in state government, district and school leadership, the business community and non-profit organizations intended to develop them as leaders and push their thinking on education issues of national importance. The eight weeks will culminate in a presentation of their work and policy recommendations to department staff and leadership.
The application deadline is 5 p.m., Friday, May 2, 2014. For more information, please visit the Delaware Department of Education.
