  • Company: Allen Neighborhood Center
  • Location: Lansing, Michigan

At Allen Neighborhood Center we have done our best to make sure we can offer youth programming to the community this fall despite the current pandemic. But with this in mind, we’ve had to make a lot of changes. We have designed a new, all-outdoor program for youth that is free and focused on garden-based science education. This program will consist of several small groups that meet once a week during different one-hour time slots. Youth ages range from 5-17, but most groups will consist of either older youth or younger youth. Prospective interns should be available for at least two days-worth of the following program hours: Mondays 2:00PM-5:00PM, Tuesdays 10:00AM-1:00PM, Wednesdays 2:00PM-5:00PM, Thursdays 10:00AM-1:00PM. Masks are required, and other safety precautions will be implemented for the safety of all youth and staff. 

Allen Neighborhood Center’s Hunter Park GardenHouse Youth Programs are offering 3 unpaid internships this semester.
