Wellness in the Schools

Wellness in the Schools is a national non-profit that teaches kids healthy habits to learn and live better. We partner with school districts to provide nutrition and fitness education, healthy scratch-cooked meals and active recess periods. Our approach improves student outcomes and drives systemic, long-term change, shifting school cultures.

Internship Description

The actual projects are to be determined after the student is selected. Before, students have taken part in a variety of projects. Some have handled our social media accounts, helping grow our platform's reach. Some have helped with our programming materials for the upcoming school year, helping put together our curriculum for our WITS Chefs and WITS Coaches. Most have helped with administrative tasks. 
We want to support the PICS Intern's interests and strengths. If the intern is interested in communications, we have them work with our development and comms team. If they're interested in the program aspect, we have them work with the program team. The intern also has the opportunity to work closely with the Executive Director, a Princeton alum, and see first-hand how a small but national nonprofit is run.
