Summer and Volunteer Opportunities
There are two sources for enrichment opportunities in Family Connection.
For an extensive list of programs throughout the U.S, go to Family Connection and then to the Colleges tab. Go to College Research and then to Enrichment Programs.
For more local opportunities specific to TJ students, the CCC prepares a Summer and Enrichment Opportunities spreadsheet that we update regularly. This list includes internships, research positions, jobs and volunteer opportunities. To access this list: Go to your Family Connection account, then click on Document Library, and then College and Career Center. You will find a spreadsheet listing many opportunities in the DC area and beyond that are relevant to TJ students’ interests. This spreadsheet is updated weekly, so please look at it regularly. You may sort the list by date, age, geographic area and type of program.
If you have a question about an opportunity, please see the Career Center Specialist or contact the organization directly.
