Set on the glorious, sun-soaked Front Range of Colorado, the YMCA of Boulder Valley is looking for Sports Administration Interns. The position, which falls under the supervision of the Senior Program Director, is responsible for assisting YMCA programs and services for youth sports. This intern will assist with several sports under the traditional sports programming umbrella. We are looking for someone who loves all aspects of sports, especially the behind-the-scenes parts: from developing innovative, new programs to working with volunteer coaches to painting lines on a soccer field to working within the department to ensure quality programming. We are not looking for someone who needs to be on the sidelines coaching. Our intern won't be running the sports clinic—but he or she will make sure the clinic runs smoothly. We are seeking a candidate who is passionate about sports in general, who enjoys being in a team environment (this is sports, after all) and who doesn't mind working a non-traditional work schedule (including nights and weekends) that fits our sports offerings. You'll need to be adaptable, solution-minded and dedicated. And most importantly, our interns believe in the cause—getting kids active and building a foundation for a life-long love of sports—and he or she is passionate about the administrative processes that help us make our mission a reality. The nitty gritty: You'll receive exposure to and will assist with: program quality and ongoing development; training and supervising volunteer staff; budget development and management; risk and facility management, fund-raising; community relations and support.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our internship experience and say that Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate is very dedicated to providing an outstanding learning, educational and fun experience for all of our interns. The "Internship Experience" is just that, an experience in which the interns will be challenged and educated from the beginning of the internship to its completion. The following is specific information regarding the recreation internship program. This internship program will be very unique and all students will gain valuable experience, which will help them to understand more about the hospitality industry. As we are a nationally approved internship site through RCRA, you can be assured that our program has met some very high standards and that this program is one of the best! Our internship program is designed to provide interns with a "hands on" experience that is like no other program. The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate is a four star – four diamond resort that sits on 1,500 beautiful acres. There are 720 luxuriously appointed guest rooms in our 16 story tower. Our spa offers everything our guests could desire, with body treatments, facials, a salon and many retail items for them to enjoy. The pool area is like a mini water-park, consisting of a family pool, lazy river, whirlpool and our adult only formal pool. There are also 8 luxurious poolside cabanas in which our guests can relax and get pampered all day. Our Family Pool has a 125' enclosed waterslide, a towering waterfall, a whirlpool, a kid's interactive water station and last but not least our 850' lazy river to float around. Croc's pool bar and grill is ready to serve all your favorite drinks and food while you enjoy the pools along with 3 other restaurants. The Recreation area also houses our sports courts, full court basketball, two lighted tennis courts, a sand volleyball court and a kid's playground. Camp Omni and the game room are also located next to the pools. We have two championship golf courses, the National and International that play host to the Del Webb Father/Son Challenge shown on NBC. For the families, we have The Champions 9 Course which is our 9 hole, par 3 golf course. We have lights all around the course for night play as well; we are the only resort in Orlando to offer this feature. The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate is sensible luxury with outstanding staff. Interns are offered a quality internship program with exposure to a wide variety of recreation opportunities that are provided for our guests. I will be hiring interns that are hand-picked from colleges & universities across the United States and Canada to run all of the recreational programs for the resort. Interns are employed by The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate, and they receive all of the discounts offered to other Omni employees. The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate recreation internship program is a very intense learning experience which includes monthly staff meetings, resume clinics, special guest speakers, business management exposure and much more. During your first week of training, the interns are introduced to all areas of the resort. During training week, you will be exposed to all areas of the recreation department as well as the rest of the resort and you will learn how all of the accounting works, opening & closing procedures for all of the outlets, how to run activities & kids camps, rules & regulations and much more. The interns responsibilities include running and creating activities, working at the pools, overseeing the water slide and lazy river, tournaments such as golf, tennis and volleyball, attending committee meetings (Safety Committee, Omni Service Champion Committee and the Sensory Advisory Board) and much more. The Towel Hut will be our base of operation in which we welcome guests to the pool, hand out towels and all other retail and sporting equipment. Interns will also run the pool slide, pool concierge program, opening and closing shifts, activities and help in the development of the recreation department. The interns handle charges and money, track transactions using the Micros computer system, Go Concierge to track cabanas, complete closing paperwork, accounting paperwork and compiling participation totals. Other experiences will include corporate recreation, holiday events, special event planning, scheduling, community programming, and much more. You will work five to six days a week, 40-45 hours a week, and you will accumulate over 600 hours during the course of your 12-15 week internship. Written mid-term and final evaluations are completed for each intern. I, along with my assistant, meet with each individual privately to discuss the evaluations and then send a copy to the intern's advisor. This evaluation process is taken very seriously and the honest comprehensive review gives the intern a firm understanding of their accomplishments and their areas requiring improvement. I keep in constant contact with your internship supervisor during the course of your internship so all parties know how everything is going. Each intern is required to complete a special project, regardless if your college or university requires it or not. This will give you experience designing and running a project on your own or with another intern depending on the size of the project. Your special project will be one that is beneficial to our guests and club members and will also be beneficial to the recreation department and the resort as a whole. It is to be completed on your own time. Some examples of special projects are: sports tournaments, teen activities, trips to area attractions, chartered tours, crazy games, our 4th of July carnival etc... Most colleges and universities require interns to complete a special project, which can be done in conjunction with the Recreation Department special project. Each intern will attend some committee meetings, which are the: Safety Committee, Omni Service Champion Committee and Sensory Advisory Board. Each intern will also be given 3 assignments to complete during their internship. The assignments are: creating a resort activity guide, developing a teambuilding event for a corporate group, and complete a Performa (budget) for a Holiday Activity. These assignments are to give the intern more experience and for the managers to see the thought process of the intern. We also offer our "Resort Shadow Program" which gives the interns an opportunity to get a first hand look at what the other department duties are and what a typical day is for them. This is a chance to see the different departments and how they work. The intern would choose a specific person to shadow and it could be from one hour to one day depending on how busy the other department is that day. It will be very similar to cross training with the other departments, enabling you to get hands on experience in other areas of the resort. Some examples of the various departments are: marketing, accounting, food & beverage, front office, sales, golf, catering, conference services and housekeeping just to name a few. Shadowing would take place during the off hours of the Interns Recreation schedule. Hours worked shadowing other departments would also be off the clock. This leaves more of an opportunity for interns to gain as much experience in other departments as possible. Another part of the internship is our "Intern Exchange" program in which we will take you to other resorts in the Orlando area. This program is designed to give you an idea and an understanding of how other resort recreation departments operate and what types of programs they have to offer. You and other interns will go to these area resorts and observe the operations of the different recreation departments. In turn, the other may send their interns to The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate and they will tour our property and get an idea of how our recreation department operates. This is a good way for you to meet other interns and directors and do a little networking. Housing is not provided, but we will assist in locating a place for you in good communities along with pricing. Interns will get paid $9.00 per hour and are covered under the resorts workers compensation plan. We have several communities within 5 minutes of the resort that we can refer interns. Participating in this internship program requires a lot of hard work and dedication; therefore interns are not allowed to hold a second job. Interns must also be taking the internship for college credit (the number of credits will depend on your school) and have an internship supervisor. It also requires interns to be very flexible, quick thinkers, enthusiastic, open minded and self motivated, because in the hospitality field, things can change very quickly and you need to be ready for any situation that comes up. This internship is going to give you real world experience. You will gain a tremendous amount of information and knowledge about how the recreation department runs and how the hospitality & hotel business is operated overall. It will be up to you to want to learn as much as you can, because the internship is what you make of it. The more you put into your internship, the more you will get out of it and it will prepare you for your future. Internship positions are open to college students with the intent on completing their college requirements for an internship experience in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Public Relations, Education and any other related majors in the hospitality field.

Atkins has been providing infrastructure planning, engineering, construction, environmental consulting, urban planning, architecture, and program management services to public and private clients across the United States for more than 50years. Globally, Atkins is the largest UK-based engineering and design consultancy and one of the world's largest design firm with nearly 18,000 employees worldwide. We have the depth and breadth of expertise to respond to the most technically challenging and time-critical infrastructure projects and the urgent transition to a low-carbon economy. At Atkins, we offer our employees more than just a job; we offer an opportunity to shape the world for generations to come through innovative and sound design. As the official engineer of the 2012 London Olympics, few companies can rival the size and diversity of our projects. Whether it’s the concept for a new skyscraper, the upgrade of a rail network, the modeling of a flood defense system or the improvement of a management process, we plan, design and enable solutions. Atkins seeks energetic, highly motivated, detail-oriented, advanced students with a professional interest in outdoor recreation, recreation management, natural resources management, environmental studies, or allied fields to join our EcoSciences West team in Roseville, CA. The ideal candidates will be: Students with a proven aptitude for and interest in the reliable collection of field data with strong inclinations for independence, adherence to data collection protocols, and creative problem solving. Willingness and ability to collect recreation user pattern data at single locations for up to 7-11 hrs a day. Willingness to commit to multiple full weekends away from Sacramento. Willingness to commit to completing the field season. Objectives: To acquire the sampling information in accord with the Monitoring Plan and to prepare objective Monitoring Reports which reflect actual whitewater use levels and user impressions of resource conditions. The manpower dedicated to sampling will adjusted to meet the level of boating activities such that 100% user-group contact is assured with a minimum of field time. Approach and task scope: The task effort is to collect whitewater boating use information in the put-in areas of the two runs (Slab Creek and Ice House), in accordance with the Monitoring Plan protocols (Subtask 02) for the 2015 and 2016 seasons and to prepare 2 Monitoring Reports for each year. The field data collection effort on the Slab Creek run should require 1 surveyor for each boating flow release event, and for the Ice House run it may require 2 surveyors rotating among the 4 potential put-n access points. Should it prove that boating uses are so low that only 1 surveyor is necessary, the level of effort at Ice House will be reduced (except for the Memorial Day weekend). This task will include field data collection training and occasional on-site over sight. Post-trip interviews will be conducted to obtain information on float-times, on-river resource concerns, level of use-group contacts and crowding, LWD issues and required portages, vehicle management approaches, city-residences of users, alternative whitewater runs, etc. It is expected that about 60 interviews will be conducted in the 2015 season and about 30 interviews will be conducted in the 2016 season. Atkins will conduct on-site training, use data monitoring, field over sight for 2 monitoring years.
