World Language Program Internship – Register now for Spring!

Interested in participating in a Crawford Central School District/ Allegheny College collaboration and earning 2 credits?

Have you taken or are you currently in a 200-level or above language class at Allegheny?

If you answered “yes” to both of these questions, you’re a great candidate for the World Language Program — an internship that sends Allegheny students into local fifth-grade classes to provide an introduction to foreign language and global culture.

World Language interns give one lesson per week and are supported by classroom teachers in the schools; at the end of the semester, you will have a portfolio that documents your teaching experience and lesson plans — plus 2 credits!
