Does your center or program need an extra hand?

Sponsor a young professional and get an extra helping hand while providing opportunities for those just starting their careers!

What you need to know as a Supervisor:

• You may need to keep a record of the hours the intern works and share these with Temple or other institutions.

• You will need to provide the student intern with direct supervision, training, and resources necessary to perform the assigned tasks and will assess the student’s performance regularly.

• You will need to communicate a clear job description to the student.

• You will meet with the student at least twice in the semester to provide performance evaluation, complete any required evaluation form and submit timely.

Next Steps

1- You need to decide what you want an intern to do in your program.  Email Norma Finkelstein – and cc Elizabeth Ozer – with your ideas on how you will use an intern.

a. Be specific – e.g., the intern will contact families when children have been absent (this might be particularly helpful with programs operating Head Start); the intern will assist in marketing your program by developing flyers and contacting interested families. A job description will need to be submitted to Temple (or other institutions).

2- First Up is monitoring the job posting responses and will screen interested students to establish the most appropriate match to your request. First Up will provide you with contact information for the student so you can connect and interview him/her.

3- If there is a match, First Up will facilitate the connection with Temple (or other institution) and assist with ensuring necessary paperwork, agreements, etc. are completed.
