Internships With The Kenwood Brotherhood

The Kenwood Academy Brotherhood is assisted by interns from graduate schools of Counseling, Social Work and Psychology. The interns provide mental health checkups weekly to assigned Brotherhood members. They also implement the 30-week mentoring curriculum which is based upon academic achievement, social-emotional development, career exploration, and cultural comprehension. The interns bring a wealth of “contemporary” knowledge regarding child and adolescent development to individual and group contact. Graduate school students that are interested in becoming an intern must contact Dr. Shelby Wyatt at . Approval involves an interview and clearance through the Chicago Public Schools volunteer process.

Adults that are interested in volunteering with the Kenwood Academy Brotherhood should contact the National Mentor Organization at MENTOR.
