What are some interesting long-term programs (in the US) I could do over a semester or summer? Free or stipend-ed preferred.
I'm graduating next January with a degree in Jewish Studies, and I want to take some time off before I go to grad school.
I'm thinking things like summer camp or educational programs. I don't want touring or work-type programs like AmeriCorps. I'm going to apply for jobs and internships too, but after having tried that in nyc a few months ago, I am not expecting anything on that front.
Some things I found include:
BCI @ American Jewish University
: Kind of a Jewish summer camp for ages 18-26. It's only $250 and looks pretty interesting.
in NYC : free 3-month programming workshop, gives scholarships to women participants...only downside is you have to actually know how to program, not just want to learn it....
Windells Adult Skateboard Camp
: It looks fun but it also looks like literally 99.99999% testosterone-raging guys, and I am a small unassuming 22 year old girl. It also seems kinda short and it's about $2,000.
Anyway, are there any more programs like these? I would be open to any suggestions, but I'm especially interested in Jewish studies/stuff, educational programs especially sociology but anything really, any kind of creative stuff, LGBT/women's studies stuff, and if you can help me find any kind of skateboarding program/camp geared toward women (not girls) I'll give you 10 million extra points.
(And I don't think I could apply for a job at a summer camp, because I feel like you had to have actually gone to summer camp as a kid to get such a job???)
