TIPS for making a good application great!
- Type all of your essay responses into a separate document (such as a Word file), making sure to correct spelling and grammatical errors before pasting into the application. (Be sure to save it!)
- Include how your interest in the Explainer Program is unique! Tell us something meaningful about yourself. Do not tell us that you want to join the program because you “need service hours” or because you “need a job.” Explainers are unpaid interns.
