Northeastern Co-op Float Position

As part of TCC's staffing pattern, TCC hires Northeastern University co-op students to fill our float teacher assistant positions for a six-month paid placement. Float teachers support Center staff and maintain ratios in each of our classrooms when a teacher is absent.   

Student Interns

TCC accepts student interns from a variety of colleges in the Greater Boston area. The hours, focus, and expectations will vary depending on the college the student attends. Students interested in doing an internship at TCC should contact the Center to schedule a tour and a brief orientation of the program.

Substitute/Summer Positions

TCC often utilizes former Northeastern University co-op students, other student interns, or college level students who have had some experience working with children to fill summer or substitute positions. Substitutes may be on-call to work on an occasional basis or part time depending upon the Center's needs. Students interested in a substitute or a summer position should email their resume to apply.
