Employment & Internships

High School Internship Program

During the 2014-15 School Year, Atlas Gabriel Park started a volunteer internship program with competent high school students who are both fluent in French and enjoy being with young children.  Throughout the year, these volunteer interns provided an extra hand in the afternoons, played with our kids in French, and accompanied our school-aged children on outings during Portland Public Schools closure days.  The program was a hit, and our best interns from the school year have become Aide I paid employees this Spring and Summer. They are a terrific addition to our team!

If you or someone you know is interested in becoming an intern, please send an email to admin@atlasimmersionacademy.com.  Interns must be at least 14 years old, be able to converse in French, and participate in an orientation prior to volunteering with the kids.
