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.

Event

CROP Walks are the community coming together to raise money and awareness for hunger relief, locally and around the world.  Over 2,000 CROP Walks happen every year in the United States.  Walkers get their family, neighbors, classmates, colleagues and places of worship to pledge dollars for the walker’s participation in a 5 K walk. (3.1 miles)  All ages can participate. 

 

The Birmingham CROP Hunger Walk will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2013 at 1:30 PM. It will take place at Caldwell Park in the Southside area of Birmingham on Highland Avenue. Caldwell Park is near the Virginia Samford Theatre.

 

One-fourth of the funds raised stays in the Birmingham area to support local hunger and poverty fighting programs.  The 2013 walk will support the work of Greater Birmingham Ministries.  The remaining money is used by Church World Service to alleviate hunger and poverty throughout the world.

 

The Birmingham CROP Walk is encouraging teams and individuals from schools and colleges, clubs and organizations, civic and cultural groups, area businesses and all faith groups to participate in this community-wide event.  There is no fee to participate.  All donations are helpful, but each walker is encouraged to raise $100 or more. Every walker receives a free t-shirt.  The Birmingham CROP Hunger Walk hopes to raise $12,000 in 2013.

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.
