Careers in Aging Exploration Internship
Have You Thought About Finding A Career Path You Didn’t Know You’d Love?
Age-Friendly Teaneck hosted four outstanding and motivated high school juniors and seniors eager to explore the changing and dynamic realm of aging career opportunities. People are living longer and populations are aging world-wide. The demand for professionals with expertise in aging is growing rapidly. We offered four years of a four-week summer internship in July.
This Careers in Aging Exploration Internship offered a comprehensive look at the kinds of social services and businesses that are expected to grow exponentially in the next decade and beyond as our population grows older. It provided a combination of a dynamic curriculum, real-world experience and one-on-one connections with professionals in the fields of aging care related social work, geriatric wellness, technology, home care, recreation, food service, housing, elder law and business management. Interns each received a $1000 stipend upon completion of the internship.
