Working to find a summer job

Students stay active learning while earning.
Students stay active learning while earning.

Summer isn’t just for vacation – it’s a time for Christel House Academy students in Indianapolis to explore new opportunities. Christel House works to place kids in activities for the summer months – whether it’s at camp, in the Academy’s Summer Enrichment program or working. “We don’t want students sitting at home all summer,” says Kara Moreland, College & Careers Administrator. Moreland works through the Spring to offer students plenty of options. For some, that means a summer job. Representatives from the Indianapolis Zoo (above) visited with Christel House students Nick, Kamryn and Jacilynn to discuss art and photography positions at the Zoo. Jacilynn worked at the Zoo last year and plans to return this summer. “It will be my third year. It’s a great experience,” she says.

Azibalule G. is in Grade 5 at Christel House South Africa. She lives with her mother and little brother in Jungle Walk, a densely populated zone within the Langa Township in Cape Town. It is a poor and dangerous place to grow up. Adri Marais, CEO of Christel House South Africa, sees the challenges kids face. “We are a gang-infested, extremely violent society,” she says. “How we deal with it is one of the major keys in unlocking the potential that our students have.” Christel House South Africa offers a safe place for children. Azibalule’s humble background fuels her desire to overcome her circumstances. She dreams to be a lawyer or a pilot. “Christel House teachers are kind,” Azibalule says. “They do their best to teach me new things.”
