If you are graduating senior with a History Major and interested in pursuing a career in education, the History Dept. urges students to consider this internship opportunity with Match Education. The Match Corps and its sister program, Match Teacher Residency, are ideal for individuals interested in taking a gap year or in transitioning into a career in education. Basically, top-notch college grads serve as tutors and mentors in our schools for one year, and have the option to participate in intense, hands-on teacher training during this residency year.
Lizzie Owen, a Match Recruitment Manager stated: “We have found that Corps members with History backgrounds have been especially effective as tutors, as they often come into their service year with a solid understanding of many of the issues faced in working toward education equality. We’ve been so thrilled to see such interest in our program develop at Trinity College! I realize you have many students in your History classes and department that are still looking for opportunities next year. We are in the last stretch of our hiring process here at Match and would be so thankful if you could send our opportunities along to your students once more. Trinity College has a great reputation for producing service-minded students with a passion for social justice.”
