WELCOME TO YOUR BAI APPLICATION!!


We are thrilled that you have landed here whether as a veteran worksite partner or a BRAND NEW ONE!  Our BAI family continues to grow and we are GRATEFUL.


Wanna get excited? Watch this video created by Bloomberg Philanthropies that includes interns from all four cities located here:  https://www.instagram.com/tv/CFH5gsqA3n1/?igshid=sno0ueeetoaw


As you now know, interns will work on meaningful, creative, and administrative projects at their placements (that’s YOU!), start their Common Application, write their college essay, create a digital portfolio of all of their work, and present their summers to family, friends, supervisors, and community at our culminating event.  What does this really look like? 


  • After four and a half days of Orientation to prepare, students start their internships. 

  • On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, students are completing their internships.  Each worksite will work with its intern to determine if participation during their internship will be in person, virtual or a combination of the two.  Interns should work 21 hours each week at their internship.

  • On Thursdays and Fridays, students participate in virtual professional development, engage with panels of artists and college admissions officers, and travel through the city's vibrant arts and cultural scene!  


We are following all COVID safety decisions as they are made and will make modifications to the program as needed. All changes will be communicated with students and families in real time.


REMEMBER, you will be paid a stipend of $1500.00 per intern to help offset the cost of staff time in supervising and guiding the intern(s).   WE WANT AND NEED YOUR TALENTS AND EXPERTISE IN SPACE TOGETHER!

WHO ARE YOU? GENERAL APPLICANT INFORMATION








LET'S TALK ABOUT HOSTING AN INTERN! 

You must be able to host interns Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays for 21 hours total each week from July 5- August 10. (Please include a 1 hour paid lunch break each day!) It is up to YOU how you structure the time and format. While we would love to have interns report to work at your office, we are all being open and flexible to how COVID will impact us in summer 2022.




IT'S ABOUT TO GET REAL

1. Please write a job posting for the position you are imagining for your intern.  If you are asking for two or three interns who will have different positions, please include multiple postings

In your posting, please include: 

*Organization Description
*Job Title
*Role Description
*Role Responsibilities
-Ensure that there are both creative and administrative opportunities!
-Are there projects with long term goals that interns could engage with? We have seen that these types of projects lead to the development of deeper skills. 
-What concrete, completed deliverables will interns create that will be used by the organization? For example, in 2020, one intern created online curriculum for the museum, another intern created a guidebook of programming available on the organization's website, and a third intern recorded podcasts of staff to post on the  organization's website.)
*Minimum and preferred qualifications
-This is an opportunity to describe the "ideal candidate!" 

Please note: 
*We will use this job posting for our Matching Event so that students have a true understanding of the position. 
*It might be an intern's first peek at a job posting! 
*We will also be incorporating how to read job postings into some of our professional development.
*It's ALL connected! 
*Fear not, we will give you an opportunity to revise this posting before the Matching Event in case things have changed!

SUPPORTING THE INTERN




5.  Finally, please select one of our anti-racist practices and share what it means to you/your organization and your work with an intern this summer. 
  • An ability to create inclusive environments where all students' unique gifts and talents are discovered and cultivated, and where students' identities (racial, cultural, social, gender, etc.) are reflected all around them and matter through acknowledgement and affirmation;
  • An ability to examine biases and an understanding of the concepts of institutional and structural racism and its impact on policies and practices, especially related to the administration of public education;
  • A passion for students: an ability to build meaningful relationships and a desire to "go above and beyond" to create homeplaces where Black joy is cultivated and thrives. 
  • A commitment to seeing families as partners in education (and communicating with them regularly).

VACCINES AND BOOSTERS AND NEGATIVE TESTS, OH MY! 

All BAI Interns are classified as Arts for Learning temporary employees. To align with our current Covid-19 policies, if accepted into the program for Summer 2022 interns will be required to submit proof of Covid-19 vaccination. If they are not able to receive the vaccine, they may request a waiver. If a waiver is granted they will be required to submit a Covid-19 test each Monday morning, taken within 72 hours.
