Imagine Children’s Museum is seeking dynamic college students to provide support during this summer’s
Discovery Club Literacy Program. The individuals who are selected for this program will work directly with
early elementary school students, acting as role models and leaders throughout the eight-week long program.
You must be available every Monday through Thursday from June 30- August 22, plus two days of training

please do not apply.
Students in this program will learn important classroom management and team building skills, practice
teaching lessons and leading activities with small and sometimes large groups, become a part of a strong
