Internship

The Communities That Care Coalition - Parent Education Wokshop

Each year in September, the Parent Ed Workgroup creates a "Parent Guide" insert that is published as a supplement to the Greenfield Recorder and the Athol Daily News. The parent guide includes features on local families, articles on parenting challenges, and lists of resources for local families. We are looking for undergraduate AND graduate interns to coordinate our annual Parent Guide in the Greenfield Recorder.

We are seeking bright, outgoing, and responsible student interns to coordinate this project throughout the spring and/or summer. This is a great project for an intern because it involves working with staff from numerous human service organizations, has room for creativity, and ends with a concrete and useful physical product that is distributed to thousands of residents. The intern(s) will be asked to:

  • attend 2 or 3 Communities That Care Coalition Parent Education Workgroup meetings (approximately monthly in Greenfield),
  • be part of discussions as the group decides on a theme, article topics, and local authors for articles,
  • contact and follow-up with the authors,
  • assist with editing,
  • (optional) write an original article for the guide, and
  • work with the Greenfield Recorder on formatting the final guide. 

The Communities That Care Coalition has been working to improve the health and well-being of young people in Franklin County and the North Quabbin for the last 16 years. Our substance abuse prevention efforts have met with tremendous success – youth substance use rates have dropped steadily, we’ve been written up in the Stanford Social Innovation Review multiple times, received national awards, and spoken at the White House. Our friendly, multi-agency Parent Education Workgroup has been doing this for many years and can provide plenty of guidance to a motivated self-starter. We have had graduate and undergraduate interns work on this project in the past, and it was a successful arrangement for everyone involved.

Please contact Kat Allen at kallen@frcog.org with any questions you have, or if you are interested.
