My wife is a Teacher (English and French) and is trying to find something to do this summer. Pay isn't really a primary concern, she mainly just want to be productive. Worse case scenario, she'll volunteer somewhere. The only catch is she can't drive, so it'd have to be accessible via metro/bus in the DC area.

Any leads on educational internships, summer student programs, or basically anything else intellectually stimulating? If she sits at home this summer, she's going to go nuts!

Trinity College in DC has an Upward Bound program during the summer and they usually hire teachers of English. Also, there may be adjunct positions at Montgomery College.

There are 2 Upward Bounds at UMD and one at Trinity that I know of. The other universities in the area may have them too. I worked with Upward Bound for 2 summers and its a great experience since the kids are all underpriveleged, first-gen college students, or both. If she is interested in using her French and volunteering, the Alliance Française library in DC takes volunteers. It's very laid back and not much of time committment, but it's something to do.

summer school...that's usually what most teachers do if they want to work the summer.

She could look into local businesses that are "seasonal" and are only open in the summer time...or at least those where the summer is their busy season.

Just off the top of my head:
-Day camps (most towns run these in the summers, as well as organizations like the YMCA)
-Day care centers
-Museums that hire extra help for the influx of DC tourists in the summer
-Any other tourism-based business (i.e. Hotels, Tour Guide companies, Boat tour operators, etc.)
-She could also inquire with the French Embassy as well as French tour companies to see if they have any summer positions (since she speaks French)

Hope this gives you a start!
