Project Salsa Mentor_Summer 2020
The MU Family Impact Center, a local nonprofit, is looking for energetic summer college interns to work with Project Salsa. This is an 8 week summer program to mentor 16 diverse high school students. Project Salsa will take place during summer 2020. (June 2 – July 24, 2020).
There are three components of the Project Salsa curriculum:
- Grow: Youth will be trained to maintain a garden.
- Cook: Youth will be divided into groups that will work on basic cooking skills. Groups will work together to research and produce their unique salsa recipe.
- Sell: Youth will apply business principles to sell their salsa at local markets. This will include creating a business plan, learning to cost out their salsa, creating a brand, and selling their product at Lucky’s Market and Columbia Farmer’s Market.
College interns will be responsible for working directly with youth to convey the three core components of the program. This will include both program planning and implementation. You will have opportunities to share real-life examples of your experiences, when discussing how to navigate the transition into the work force. In addition, college interns will have administrative responsibilities such as coordinating meal pick up, confirming guest speakers, and evaluating program objectives.
