Are you studying Japanese, Chinese, Hindi or any subject related to Japan, China or India?  Are you interested in teaching or simply sharing your knowledge about Asia with school-age children?  Earn one CU upper division credit hour teaching about a country of your interest to 1st and 2nd graders! Build your resume whether you are planning to teach, apply for a teaching position abroad or continue your studies at a graduate school.

We are currently accepting applications for our Spring 2015 internship, “It’s Elementary” Service Project (IESP). This is an opportunity for undergraduates to learn about outreach in K-12 education as they go into elementary school classrooms to present lessons on Japanese, Chinese, or Indian cultures and languages.

Interns will receive one upper-division credit for a minimum of 45 hours of service, 25 of which will be in the classroom. We are looking for undergraduate students with knowledge of Japanese, Chinese, and Indian languages and cultures. Interns must have at least two three-hour blocks of time available during the week between school hours (8am-3pm), and they must have access to reliable transportation.

Students will gain professional skills in communication and organization, an opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life by introducing them to Chinese, Japanese, or Indian language and culture, and potential contacts for recommendation for future job opportunities.

Join us for an information meeting to find out more about the program on Monday, November 10 at 4pm in the Center for Asian Studies Conference Room (1424 Broadway).

To apply, email Julie Kang at to receive and application. Applications are due Friday, November 21, at 5:00 p.m. Inquires should be directed to Julie Kang.
