F&M Works in Lancaster

F&M Works in Lancaster is a year-long internship opportunity for students who are passionate about making a positive impact in the local community. Interns learn valuable work skills, explore potential career paths and gain access to a network of dedicated community professionals that truly value the opportunity to work with and mentor F&M students. Placements are within four categories: County Services, Youth Development, Public & Mental Health, and Nonprofit Management.

What Interns Do

Students are carefully matched to an organization requesting an intern according to their career interests.  Interns are paid by the College to work 10 hours each week at non-profit organizations, providing the organizations with much-needed additional staffing that helps build capacity and support programming. In addition, interns attend professional development workshops, networking dinners and reflection sessions.
