Camp Intern Posting

SOAR Special needs is growing and expanding, and part of this expansion is three day camps in the Kansas City metropolitan area for summer 2022.  Due to this exciting expansion, we will need multiple interns for the summer. The internship will begin June 6th and end August 12th, totaling 10 weeks. Most of the weeks’ time will be located at the SOAR office in Lenexa, KS.

Roles serving in the special needs community can look very different, and SOAR strives to meet the needs of all of our participants and their families. Because of this, there will be experience to gain no matter what your major, or intended major may be. As an intern, you’ll not only gain real work experience, but also meet and learn from industry professionals. You will also start to build your own network, from fellow interns to seasoned professionals in various fields that work with those who are a part of the special needs community.

As a SOAR intern for the summer of 2022, you will have a variety of duties that will vary from day to day in the weeks leading up to the camps to help with the understanding of the camp, its participants and volunteers. During the weeks of camp you will have a variety of duties, but the most important duty will be the team leadership role. At our camps there will be teams of 10-12 participants with their buddies, and 2 team leads. As a team lead intern you would be one of those team leads at all 3 camps. These camp locations are Lee’s Summit, MO, Overland Park , KS, and Gladstone, MO.
