demonstrations in one day. We are willing to offer a stipend of $20 per 15 minutes demonstration. You do

Volunteers Needed for Baltimore City Computer Initiative

'Let's All Take Computers Home,' or L@TCH, is a program created from a partnership between a community organization in east Baltimore called, Historic East Baltimore Community Action Coalition (HEBCAC) and the Center for Community Technology Services(CCTS). The goal of L@TCH is to distribute a home computer to every Baltimore city student who does not have one. Those who work on this program believe that computers can help parents keep up to date on their child's progress in school while improving a child's home learning environment by providing them with a home learning center.

We are looking for volunteers who would be interested in leading computer training workshops for Baltimore families. We will train or coach volunteers to deliver 3 hour training sessions to small groups of parents and kids at various locations in Baltimore. We are working with five schools, at each school there will be three training workshops that will take place sometime between the end of November to February. We are asking each volunteer to, ‘adopt a school’ and if possible, lead all three training workshops at one location. The workshops would be on weekday evenings and/or Saturday mornings. The curriculum has already been written so the computer lesson is scripted. The focus of the lesson would be computer set-up and online safety. You do not have to be a tech geek to help us, we just need someone who knows a little bit about computers and is not afraid of public speaking! For more information visit our website: everyfamilyconnected.org

Individuals interested in volunteering please email devons@cctsbaltimore.org

The intern may also be called on to carry out other campaign tasks, as needed, such as recruiting organizations from around the country to support the legislation or to renew their support.

Candidates interested in public policy, sustainable agriculture, and environmental issues are encouraged to apply. We will consider applicants with a wide variety of backgrounds. Candidates with interest and education in political science, agriculture, environmental science, and public health, or with a background in political campaigns/organizing efforts are especially encouraged to apply.

Basic qualifications: Excellent organizational skills, attention to detail, strong oral and written communication skills, and proficiency with computers.

Education requirements: Enrolled as an undergraduate or Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.

Hours and pay: 35 hours/week; monthly pay commensurate with experience and training.

Location: Union of Concerned Scientists, Washington, DC office.

Last Two Weeks to Obtain Intern Credit and/or Get Your Internship, Research, or Co-op Added to your Transcript for Spring 2009

Have you found the internship or research position of your dreams on your own, but just don't know how to get credit for it this spring semester? Do you want a notation on your transcript for all your hard work, but are unsure how to proceed?

Well look no further! The staff at the UMBC Shriver Center is here to help!

That internship you found is important to obtain admission to graduate school and to find employment after graduation. You gain experience, can get paid, and could potentially obtain three upper level credits, all by interning only 8 to 10 hours per week.

Best of all, if you found an internship, co-op, or research position on your own for the spring, you can get the notation on your transcript (FREE OF CHARGE) - and be on your way to possibly receiving credit- its not too late. That's right, the deadline to add the intern notation or obtain credit for the spring semester is in two weeks.

IN ORDER TO GET YOUR INTERNSHIP/CO-OP/RESEARCH POSITION TO BE ADDED TO YOUR TRANSCRIPT:

1. Either call (410-455-2493) or stop by the Shriver Center on the ground floor of the Public Policy Building to make an appointment with a Coordinator.
2. Get a letter/memo from your employer (on company letterhead) verifying that you are interning 8-10 hours per week and bring it to your appointment.
3. Meet with your Coordinator to get enrolled in the Practicum (to have the notation put on your transcript as a university sanctioned experience) and have your potential credit options explained to you.
4. Enjoy your internship, co-op, or research position!

If you do not already have an internship lined up but are interested in obtaining one, we’ll be glad to help you with that as well.

A Thanksgiving Message from the Shriver Center

Are you dreading that Thanksgiving conversation?

You know, the one that goes something like:

Family-member: So, what are you going to do next summer?

You: I don't know, probably the same thing I did last year.

Family Member: Well, with all the news about the economy, I don't think it's smart to put all your eggs in one basket. And you know you can't mooch off of us another year.

You: Stop bugging me! I just don't know where to begin!

And an awkward silence fills the room, ruining your delicious pumpkin pie.

Wouldn't you rather be able to say...

You: Well, I met with my Shriver Center coordinator and they helped me get my resume in good shape. They also showed me how to use UMBCworks to apply to positions. I have two offers already from Fortune 500 companies and I'm interviewing with 3 other organizations over winter break. While I haven't made up my mind yet, I have a lot of good choices. The economy may be down, but there is still a strong market for interns and I know I'm going to have a good experience that may even set me up for a fulltime job after graduation.

Call 410-455-2493 to make an appointment with the Shriver Center TODAY to start your path to a successful spring or summer internship and avoid Thanksgiving awkwardness.

Three myths about Internships, Research, and Co-ops

Three myths about Internships, Research, and Co-ops brought to you by your Shriver Center Coordinators at UMBC

Myth: The downturn in the economy means that no internships are available.

FACT: Interns are still in demand and will be where many organizations look to fulfill their fulltime recruiting needs. More and more companies report that they are using their interns as an effective way to fill their hiring needs. By participating in an internship you can get the inside track on the best opportunities. The Shriver Center has connections with hundreds of organizations where you can get your foot in the door (most paid). By getting your resume approved in UMBCworks, you will have access to them as well!

Myth: Most students don't have enough experience to make a compelling resume and get the best positions.

FACT: You're probably more competitive than you think - and the Shriver Center can help you develop a resume and interview skills that will make you stand out. The Shriver Center has a range of services just for UMBC students to help you standout from your peers and get the positions you seek. We specialize in working with students to transform your credentials from ordinary to extraordinary!

Myth: If you're going to graduate school, you don't need to do internships or research.

FACT: What will make your applications stand out is the ways that you have applied what you have learned inside the classroom in a practical setting. The Shriver Center isn't just for students preparing for the corporate world - UMBCworks has many opportunities for students interested in research and academia. Taking advantage of these opportunities now will help you be more prepared and qualified for graduate studies.

To take advantages of all of these opportunities and more, log onto UMBCworks and start applying today!

For those of you who do not have a UMBCworks account, visit us on the web at http://www.shrivercenter.org/student_howdoigetstarted.html
and call our front desk at 410-455-2493 to make an appointment to get your resume reviewed. The Shriver Center is located on the 1st Floor of the Public Policy Building.

Teach for America

Of the 13 million children growing up in poverty, only half will graduate from high school. Those that do graduate will perform on average at an 8th grade level.

YOU can change this.

Teach For America is a national nonprofit trying to close the achievement gap between low- and high-income school districts.
