Summer REVternship Update

We are thrilled to be gearing up for our inaugural summer REVternships. Preparation is already in full swing. This week, 11th graders met Erica Woods, the Associate Director of Admissions at Villanova University, to talk about interviewing for internships, jobs, college and life! Next week, we will practice these skills in preparation for our first meeting with REVternship host organizations on April 22.

As a reminder, the REVternship program is a UNIQUE to Revolution School program in which students choose from a variety of hand picked organizations and people to engage in 60 total hours (ideally over 4-6 weeks) of meaningful work for which they will receive a stipend. The program is mandatory. For more details and list of current host organizations, CLICK HERE or watch this brief video .

Preparing for Summer REVternship interviews with Erica Woods, Associate Director of Admissions at Villanova University.

Penn students who are developing a time management app designed for students pitched the Jochi App to Revolution School students on Monday.

A 9th grade role-play covered a critical part of the French Revolution, the trial of King Louis XVI (played by Ms. Jeanne). Students each researched and played a real character who participated in the trial, and as in real history, the king was found guilty and sentenced to execution. (Of course we did not use a guillotine.) Some student were shocked to learn that their character was suddenly put on trial as well.
