Extended School Enrichment Internship Summary

The purpose of this position is to further the student's understanding and experience in the field of parks and recreation and assist with a variety of recreation management duties, such as setting up for summer. Through this internship, I got a chance to improve on my skills and goals. I was granted an opportunity to work with my site supervisor to learn more about how to improve my time management skills, research, and how to manage a site plan. Some of the things that I got a chance to do at my internship to help with my goals were that I was in charge of setting up the summer science camp. I got to set it up by researching experiments and fun activities so that kids from kindergarten to 5th grade could have fun. Another skill I got to improve was having and sticking to a budget! All this goes back to the great opportunity I got to be part of the SIP.
