IMPACT ALABAMA  / COLLEGE FIRST

Summer Mentors

 

Opportunity

Impact Alabama's CollegeFirst (Advanced Placement Mentoring Initiative) is eager to recruit Birmingham-Southern students to participate as mentors in our Pre-AP summer academic enrichment program.  CollegeFirst is an AmeriCorps program designed to prepare local high school students for an upcoming course in advanced placement Biology, Chemistry, Calculus, or English.  We are looking for high-achieving college students to serve as mentors during the month of June.

 

Description

CollegeFirst is a partnership with A+ College Ready, a collaborative initiative committed to expanding and strengthening math and science Advanced Placement (AP) programs in Alabama. The mission of CollegeFirst is to train college students to help implement a Summer Advanced Placement Institute for high school students enrolled in AP Biology, AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, and AP English Language. CollegeFirst believes that all willing and academically motivated students deserve the opportunity to succeed in rigorous, college-level

experiences and the advantages they bring.

 

The CollegeFirst Summer Advanced Placement Institute partners college students and Impact Alabama staff members with high school students for three weeks of tutoring and mentoring during the month of June. Guided by college mentors, high school students will spend three weeks preparing for the AP Biology, AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, or AP English Language courses they will take in the fall. High school students will experience college-level laboratory assignments and problem sets and will follow lesson plans prepared by highly qualified AP Teachers.

 

How am I Making a Difference?  CollegeFirst is a great opportunity to work directly with highly motivated high school students. The students who participate in CollegeFirst are eager to learn and take advantage of the help college mentors can provide. CollegeFirst focuses on students from A+ College Ready program high schools that have not traditionally had strong AP programs. Many students lack the foundational knowledge to do well in AP courses. This program can help provide them with that background and also give them early exposure to concepts they will encounter in their AP courses.

 

As a CollegeFirst mentor, you serve as an outstanding resource to the high school students. Mentors share enthusiasm about these AP subjects and help high school students learn how to set high goals and experience success in AP classes as well as future academic endeavors. Many of our mentors stay in touch with the high school participants after CollegeFirst. It is a tremendously rewarding experience for everyone involved.

 

Qualifications

We are seeking high-achieving college students who possess mentoring, tutoring and teaching skills and who are competent and knowledgeable in Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, and English.

BIRMINGHAM BOTANICAL GARDENS

Summer Internship

 

Opportunity

The Rotary Club of Shades Valley (RCSV) is funding a summer internship at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens (BBG), a City of Birmingham facility, for the sixth consecutive year. The internship is an excellent opportunity for a full-time college student or recent graduate to learn skills in applied horticulture and to gain practical experience toward a career in public horticulture. The intern will be employed by the Birmingham Botanical Society, Inc., dba Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens (FOBBG), an education-based non-profit organization that has partnered with the city for over 45 years in the operation of BBG. The intern will work under the supervision of a number of BBG and FOBBG staff throughout the summer, but the principal contact will be the Director of Education with the FOBBG.

 

Description

Work and instruction will focus on disciplines central to botanical garden management and maintenance, including the principles of plant propagation, greenhouse and nursery production, planting, grounds maintenance, arboriculture, pest and weed management and the curatorial aspects of plant collections. Depending on the interests of the intern, work and instruction may include plant display design, library and archives, marketing, membership, fund raising, public relations, child and adult education, and visitor and volunteer programs. The intern will work in the various gardens at BBG: the Kaul Wildflower Garden; Hulsey Woods and Japanese Garden; Alabama Woodlands; Fern Glade; Iris and Lily Gardens; Rose Garden; Conservatory and greenhouses; and in the administration building (Garden Center.) The intern also will be given time to attend relevant local meetings, events and lectures with staff. The intern also may work on an on-going project of his or her interest. The 2009 intern, for example, developed a brochure on medicinal plants in the BBG; the 2010 intern wrote regular posts for the BBG website and the 2012 intern researched a rare endemic Alabama fern. Time will be provided each week by BBG and FOBBG staff to instruct the intern on a tutorial basis.

 

Qualifications

The internship is open to a rising junior or senior attending a four-year college or university full-time or to a recent graduate (within the last twelve months) of a two- or four-year college. Preference will be given to students majoring in horticulture, landscape design, landscape architecture, biology, ecology, plant science, and environmental science or a closely related discipline, as determined by the Director of Education. Past interns have continued their educations in graduate school, studying landscape architecture, plant science and public garden leadership at Mississippi State, Tennessee State and Cornell Universities, respectively, or they have investigated career options tempered by their internship experience. 

 

Notes

The internship will begin in May (the start date will depend on the availability of the intern) and will last from ten to twelve weeks (depending on the availability of the intern) at forty hours per week. Eight-hour days will be from 7 or 8 a.m. to 4 or 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with a non-paid hour break for lunch. Pay is fifteen dollars ($15.00) per hour for a maximum of $7200 paid to the intern. Tools and rain and safety gear will be provided. The intern will treated much like other employees, with the same expectations for proper dress, punctuality, work ethic and appropriate behavior, including safety awareness. The intern will participate in the annual staff summer “fun day.” The same summer holidays apply (Memorial Day and the 4th of July.) The intern will attend a RCSV meeting each month in May, June and July and will be required to present a verbal summary of the internship experience accompanying a 20-minute slide presentation at a RCSV weekly meeting during August.

 

Candidates must provide a 1 or 2 page resume; a statement in approximately 200 words of professional objectives regarding the internship; a reference from his or her academic advisor, who is knowledgeable of the candidate’s scholastic standing toward graduation; and are required to have proof of a valid driver’s license (exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis, for example, for disabled but otherwise qualified applicants.) The internship is very competitive and candidates are encouraged to be thorough, detailed, grammatically accurate and concise with their applications. All materials must be received by 5 p.m., Friday, March 15, 2013. Materials may be submitted electronically or in hard copy. It is the candidate’s obligation to ensure the receipt of application materials at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens by the deadline. A decision on the successful candidate will be made by 5 p.m., Monday, April 1, 2013 following a personal interview that will include representatives of FOBBG and RCSV.

GOOD PEOPLE BREWING COMPANY

Sales Marketing Internship

 

Opportunity

Good People Brewing Company is seeking qualified Sales & Marketing Interns.  Good People Brewing Company is Alabama’s oldest and largest brewery, and one of the leaders in South’s craft brewing movement.

 

Description

No paper pushing or coffee making!  In this twelve-week program, interns will get a broad view of the craft brewing industry.  We’ll teach you the language of craft beer by helping you pass the Cicerone Certified Beer Server exam.  You’ll learn about craft beer’s place in today’s economy by meeting and interacting with a wide network of Good People’s partners.  You’ll also experience the daily work of the brewery in getting its message and product in front of the customer by planning and executing three promotional events.

 

Receive close supervision and feedback, as well as firsthand training.  You’ll have twice-weekly phone or in-person contact with a mentor, who will support you in organizing three promotional events during the program.  Build a network of contacts in the industry.  You’ll meet representatives from manufacturers, distributors, and retailers that operate within the three-tier system. The program itself is designed to allow individuals not only to meet these people, but get noticed by them.  Learn the essentials of beer.  The gold standard for sales training in the craft beer industry is the Cicerone Certification program.  Many employers, including Good People, require certification to work in a sales or marketing area.  Meet our partners.  You’ll get to know some of the people we work with and rely upon, and you’ll start to understand the relationships that affect and are affected by craft beer.  Make an impact.  Good People is a small company made up of people working at something we believe in.  We recognize that a sales and marketing person, whether an unpaid intern or a founder of the company, has the chance to define our presence in a market.  This means that we expect everyone, including our interns, to recognize the importance of what they’re doing and run with the opportunity.

 

Qualifications

Any major.  We’re looking for students who can handle the responsibility of organizing their own schedule, meeting deadlines, and talking to people from many different walks of life.  This is an unpaid internship, but one filled with opportunity, including the possibility of paid work from Good People after the completion of the program.

 

Notes

Unpaid internship.  Semester-long, for credit. Must be 21 years old.
