Washington County 4-H Teen Teacher Paid Summer Internship

Washington County, Maine youth make a difference in your community this summer teaching kids about engineering and science!

Teen leaders lead a science experiment.

4-H Teen Teaching is a paid summer internship for teens ages 14-17 which will give you 21st Century Skills for your future. The internship is only a few hours per week during June and July so you can combine this awesome opportunity with another summer job or internship if you choose. If you take this challenge you will learn communications, leadership, perseverance, teamwork, science, teaching skills, and meet new friends.

If you are selected, you will teach a science lesson to youth in 3rd-6th grade at least once a week. We will train you (you must be available for the training June 19th) how to teach others and the subject matter. The theme for this year is Ocean Literacy and Engineering. There will be a teaching site at Washington Academy, Porter Memorial Library and possibly other communities. You must find transportation to your assigned teaching sites. The place where you teach depends on where you live and what transportation you have available; 4-H will assign you the closes site possible at the training in June.
