Southeast Alaska Independent Living is now seeking a college intern for the 2013/14 academic year. This college-credit eligible internship will be through SAIL’s ORCA Program in the Juneau office. Serving nearly 200 individuals throughout Southeast Alaska last year, the ORCA program has provided quality adaptive and therapeutic recreation to individuals of all ages who experience a disability.
Interns must currently be enrolled in a college degree program, possess an intermediate level of cross country or downhill ski or snowboard skills, and be able to commit to 10-15 hours per week throughout the academic year. The intern must also demonstrate experience and/or interest in a variety of outdoor pursuits as well as an interest in working with people experiencing disabilities. Benefits include a monetary stipend, Eaglecrest season pass or lift tickets, and the potential to earn college credit. ORCA program staff will work with the intern and his or her class schedule to meet the requirements for stipend reimbursement.
Applications are due Sept. 12 and can be found at www.sailinc.org or www.uas.alaska.edu/career_services/internships.html. For information or questions, contact Tristan Knutson-Lombardo at 586-4920 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This internship is made possible by a grant from the Juneau Community Foundation’s Douglas-Dornan Fund.
