Summer Break Internships

CalTeach offers paid summer internships ($13.75 - $17.00 per hour) working with K–12 students at leading Bay Area non-profit organizations. Through these programs, interns work with K–12 students, and sometimes teachers, in summer activities that focus on math, science, and engineering.

We offer a wide variety of internships and duties vary, however most involve some combination of planning math or science activities, mentoring and tutoring students, developing and implementing curriculum, and leading lessons.

Students are advised that the participant support stipends, like other scholarships and awards, may adjust their current financial package. It is recommended that students speak to the Financial Aid Office in Sproul Hall to see what, if any, adjustment may occur, or if you any other have concerns regarding the scholarships.
