MTR Camp is a paid summer internship for college students interested in urban education. The program is designed to provide academic enrichment within a summer camp experience for students who attend an MTR partner school, while exposing Interns to urban education in Memphis and the residency program. Additionally, Interns will live in intentional community, explore Memphis and receive training in effective instructional techniques.
Why We Do MTR Camp
Summer learning regression is the loss in academic skills and knowledge over the course of summer vacation. There is a need for quality summer programming that reinforces skills from the previous school year in order to ensure that students start school at the same level they were on before the break. Providing intense classroom experience with training and support will assist college students in deciding if teaching is a great career choice for them.
What does success look like?
- Reduce summer learning regression
- Promote a love of learning
- Expose college students to urban education
