“Seeing young girls excited about STEM has been really meaningful and encourages me to continue improving Robogals and increasing our reach to impact more girls.”

“In a given week, I might be working with our program staff who are based around the US, Canada and the UK to design learning experiences for teachers; meeting with partner organizations to plan collaborative projects; consulting with filmmakers or scholars who want to reach students; or researching and writing about challenging issues for educators.... It’s probably unusual to stay at one place for so long, but I’ve always been able to answer ‘yes’ to a few key questions: Am I learning? Is my world getting bigger? Is my work making a difference?”

“When students ask me how I became a teacher, I’m quick to credit serendipity; I didn’t intend to spend my career in education when I took my first teaching job, but I couldn’t be more grateful to have landed here.”

“Although I am still deep in the throes of being a ‘first year’ teacher, I would not trade my experience for anything.... Teach For America has taught me to be strong, to be critical and to be thankful.”

“I hear from the parents of Dynamo Girls whose daughters are on the cusp of taking great risks: at the top of mountains, at the sides of a pool, in the wings before going on stage, and the parents say to them—‘You can do this. You are a Dynamo Girl.’”

    Spanish Department Internships

    The Spanish Department is pleased to offer several internship opportunities to practice and continue exploring the Spanish and Hispanic languages and culture. For Summer 2021, the Spanish Department has confirmed virtual internships at El Observatorio Instituto Cervantes at Harvard University (Cambridge, MA) and el Museo de Arte de Ponce (Ponce, Puerto Rico).

    Due to the continuing pandemic, it is unclear whether the following opportunities will be offered this summer:

    • Asociación de parálisis cerebral y otras afecciones similares, (ACPACYS) (Córdoba, España)
    • Museo de Arte de Ponce (Ponce, Puerto Rico)
    • Universidad Internacional Menéndez y Pelayo (UIMP) (Santander, España)

    Wellesley has not determined whether it will resume funding in-person internships this summer; a decision is expected in April. Many organizations are also uncertain whether they are able to host this summer. If, at a later date, an internship at one of these organizations becomes possible, the Spanish Department and Career Education will advertise the opportunity and reopen the application for these sites.

    Through the ongoing and generous support of our donors, the College is able to offer funding to support unpaid internships which students identify on their own. Many award recipients pursue internships in nonprofit organizations focused on education and other community development areas, but funding is available for opportunities in other sectors both within the United States and internationally, as well. In addition to the stipends, Wellesley Career Education staff provide ongoing professional development and career education training throughout their summer experiences.
