Amity Intern Information
The Foundation funds and coordinates the hiring of native-German-speaking college teaching interns to work at either the Milwaukee German Immersion School (MGIS) or the Milwaukee School of Languages (MSL), providing valuable exposure for the students. The ability to bring these interns to help in the classrooms would not be possible without donations that cover the fees and related expenses for each inter and the generosity of families who provide housing each semester.
During the last few years, the Foundation has been able to support as many as five to seven interns a semester, which requires as many as 24 host families for a single school year. You are able to host an intern for as little as 9 weeks or as much as a full semester.
Families who have hosted in the past have found the experience very rewarding, benefited from learning more about the German culture and having a native speaker able to regularly interact with their children to increase their language skills. Many have made friends for life and have visited their interns when traveling to Europe.
