Provo School District Truancy Office Internship – volunteer and get amazing school social work experience

Provo School Truancy Office

The Provo School District Truancy Office provides rich experience for interns. They provide a strong social work in an education setting opportunity. Every year, the Truancy Office internship is a great experience for our students, but this fall it will be even more of an opportunity for growth with all of the extra challenges created by the pandemic.

The Provo Truancy Office needs several interns, but they need people who can take initiative, show innovative skills, and help in creating curriculum and new processes. They have set hours that are needed during regular school days and some after school hours may be available as well, but interns need to work around the Truancy Office schedule rather than expecting the Truancy Office to change school hours.

Just like schools had to get creative in providing ‘drive-through’ graduations at the end of the school year in May 2020, the Truancy Office will need to create new and unique engagement with students and parents. The population will look a little different this year due to many parents and students in higher economic brackets having anxiety about Covid-19 as well as anxiety about not having as much teacher contact. There will be a lot of opportunity for student interns to contribute in creating new programs and processes along with the usual type of experiences offered at the Provo Truancy Office.

If you are one who takes initiative and likes to make a difference in the world, then the Provo Truancy Office Internship experience could be the right fit for you!

If interested, please email a cover letter (expressing interest) and your resume soon to Jode Porter (pronounced like Jodie):

Full-time Job: CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP ADVOCATE @ Fidelity Investments




Do you enjoy helping others? Are you the “go to person” at work or in your community? Would your friends and family describe you as friendly and resourceful?  We really should talk.

This is a full-time hourly position that offers the opportunity for overtime based on the business needs and your availability.

The Expertise We’re Looking For:

  • Relationship building skills
  • Commitment to customers
  • Experience in service, healthcare, or hospitality in people facing industries are strongly preferred.

The Purpose of Your Role:

You bring your passion, we’ll invest in you.  Yes, we are in financial services, but not in the competitive and old-fashioned way you might be thinking.  We offer an industry-leading, paid development program that will prepare you to engage with customers while obtaining your Series 7 and 63 licenses where you will learn all about the financial services industry products.

These inbound phone calls, chats, and email interactions can range from something as simple as an account balance inquiry to the complexity of helping inform difficult financial decisions, but your mission remains the same:  help customers feel more confident, make clearer decisions, and achieve their own financial dreams.

The Skills You Bring:

  • Your unwavering commitment to customers
  • Desire to learn and a dedication to study and apply a new conceptual content to obtain your financial licenses

The Value You Deliver:

At Fidelity, collaboration isn’t just about working together in our small teams (15ish); it’s about improving lives together.  Our success as a firm is due to the personal responsibility and pride our associates take in getting things just right, and the compassion that drives us to go the extra mile for our customers and each other.  We ask for and act on our associates’ input on everything from busting through customer issues to designing our workspaces.

Your Life:

We believe that a balanced life is important. Our benefit programs are designed to help you and your loved ones balance the needs of work, life and family.  Sound too good to be true?  See for yourself and learn more about our benefit offerings.
