Ways to Support the Intern Program
SEF TREASURER POSITION
The SEF is currently seeking someone to shadow this year’s treasurer. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Toni Alcantar at email@example.com.
This position is VERY important, and the SEF cannot operate without filling this role. The hours are completely predictable and 99% of this role can be done from the comfort of your own home at your own convenience. There are some due dates that must be adhered to for Government reporting; however, the 10-15 hours per month for regular book keeping can be set at your own convenience. Please apply or refer someone you know who would like to add this role to their resume while assisting our amazing school!
General ‘On Call’ Volunteers
Sign up to be on an ‘on call’ list of volunteers the SEF can contact when volunteers are needed for various events or projects throughout the year. If you aren’t available when we contact you, no problem. We will try again next time! If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Toni Alcantar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Year Long
Host an International Teaching Intern!
We need families to provide room and board for our interns while they are here in
Minnesota. Families can choose to host an intern for half or an entire school year.
It is a very rewarding experience for both the host family and the intern.
If you are interested in being a Host Family, please fill out the Host Family Application today!
Become a Buddy Family
Buddy families help support the host families. They help with transportation, take the interns on family outings and are another home for the interns. Buddy families support the interns and host families for an entire school year.
If you are interested in being a Buddy Family, please fill out the Buddy Family Application today!
We ask families to help with the interns’ transportation needs so the burden doesn’t fall solely on the host families. Interns need transportation to classes (evenings and weekends), school events (after school and evenings) and social events (evenings and weekends). Click here to sign up to be a driver on the intern transportation website.
Our interns usually come from warmer climates and are not prepared for the winter weather here in Minnesota. We take clothing donations of hats, gloves, jackets, boots, snow pants, vests, sweaters and pants. We clean and store these items once donated and use them from year to year for each group of interns. Have warm winter clothing to donate? Contact the Intern Clothing Coordinator.
We cannot have International Teaching Interns if we do not have Host Families, Buddy Families, Transportation Volunteers or Clothing Donations to support them.
If you are interested in hosting an intern, being a buddy family, are willing to drive interns to their activities or have winter clothing to donate, please use the links above to contact the coordinators or sign up to be a driver.
