Intercultural Intern Trainee Program
Tulane ESL is searching for a dozen American high school students 16-18 years old who are interested in learning about other countries and cultures. Intercultural Intern Trainees would interact with peers from other countries who traveled to Tulane for summer programs.
Intercultural Interns Trainees would develop a better ability to work and learn internationally without the risk and expense of travel abroad. Working as a team with their international counterparts, they would learn how to design activities to introduce culture and language to each other. As a training program, this non-credit program has an emphasis on applying knowledge and involves more active engagement with international visitors and little time spent in the classroom.
Due to donor program generosity, the cost is free with some meals provided. Local and out-of-state applicants will both be considered, with housing available on campus for out-of-town applicants. The program runs from June 25 to July 13, with some local candidates able to extend part-time until August 17.
Interested applicants should submit their interest by January 31. They will receive an application in February that is due February 28. Successful candidates will be notified by March 31. Express your interest by filling out the following form: https://tinyurl.com/ITTP2018
