If you are a foreign teaching or language student, who speaks one or more of our target languages, and you are interested in being an intern at Franklin, please contact Amity Institute at Amity.org.
Thanks to your generous donations the BFEF funds the Amity Intern Teacher Program at Franklin Magnet School.
Amity Internship program provides volunteer teaching assistants to serve as models of language and culture. Interns can be assigned to a school for up to 12 months. Interns assist in the classroom for up to 32 hours per week and live with Franklin host families. Interns are here to bring their languages and cultures to life, to engage and motivate students and leave them with new confidence in their ability to communicate across borders. Interns inform and inspire, helping students better understand other parts of the world. Our Interns will shape the local community’s perspective on their country, its culture and people. Interns also learn about US culture and gain a deeper understanding of their own. Our final goal is that Interns return home and share what they have learned and experienced with their own communities.
Host Families Are Always Needed!
