Pediatrics – SPARK Center
Education Interns and Volunteers
Education Interns and Volunteers are welcome to apply for unpaid internship at the SPARK Center during the year. An initial phone call to schedule a visit and complete Intern/Volunteer paperwork is required. An Immunization Form must be completed before any Intern/Volunteer can work with children. Classroom schedule and supervision times are posted in the front office and are also given to education staff. Volunteers and Interns are asked to follow the lead of the primary teacher and to assist in daily activities – meals, circle time, projects and outside time. Interns and Volunteers are not permitted to change diapers, accompany children to the bathroom without a teacher present or be left alone to supervise children. On-site direction is provided by teachers. Formal supervision is provided by Therapeutic Early Childhood Program coordinators and by the Coordinator of Interns and Volunteers.
