FosterClub All-Star Internship

The FosterClub All-Star Internship Program was founded on the belief that youth who have successfully transitioned from foster care to responsible young adulthood are best suited to impact the transition of their younger peers. Since 2004, FosterClub All-Stars have been reaching out to other foster youth through conferences, trainings and events.

The 2016 All-Star Internship is underway at FosterClub! The interns are receiving leadership training, helping improve outcomes for foster youth transitioning out of care, educating peers and industry professionals, and changing public perceptions about foster youth across the nation at conferences and events all summer long.

Meet the 2016 All-Star Interns and follow their journey!

Program Details:

  • 7-week Summer residence internship at FosterClub headquarters in Seaside, Oregon
  • Contract opportunities through summer 2017
  • Paid travel and housing expenses
  • Cell phone reimbursement

Eligibility:

  • 18 to 24 years old at the beginning of internship
  • Experienced foster care in the United States
  • Permission to travel and a government issued photo ID

ALL-STAR SELECTION

rballesteros's picture

Angel Petite,

Hello my name is Ricky Ballesteros. I am from the state of Utah and applied for a position on the FosterClub All-Star team. When I applied, I was under the impression that I would be notified by 15 April 2015 on whether or not I was chosen as an All-Star. I have still not received any notifications. Normally I am a patient person, but if I am not selected, I need to apply for summer classes. My university has opened up registration and the classes are filling up fast. If there is anyway I can get an answer, so I can know if I need to start applying for school, I would really appreciate that!

Thanks,

Ricky Ballesteros

Hi Ricky

APetite1's picture

Hi Ricky,

Thank you for contacting us. We are still in the application review process. Please rest assured that you will know one way or another if you are selected. This is a highly competitive internship with a complex review process that takes time. We do ask that you do not put any plans for the summer on hold while waiting to hear back as there are a significant of number of applicants and a limited number of slots. We are hoping to get all notifications out, to schedule phone interviews or otherwise, before the end of April.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

rballesteros's picture

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I will continue to be patient and hope for the best. When the selections are made, how will the applicants be contacted? I assume it will be through email? Should I be looking for an email in the next couple of weeks or will it be a phone call?

Inspired from "Hoping for a Chance" by Hayleyjean22

Keisha Elizabeth's picture

I've always wanted to surround myself with young people with a common background as myself. It would just be so powerful if we all came together to make a difference and make changes. I feel really inspired and the enthusiasm from the other bloggers has me really excited at the possibilities. I extend my hope for us all a chance. Being an All- Star will give me an opportunity for "Turn my Pain to Triumph" a quote from a song I wrote. And that dream coming to life will be truly amazing.
