The Ware Institute and the PIT Planning Intern organize PIT program. Each spring and during the summer the PIT planning intern and the Ware Institute staff review all applications and make selections for the incoming PIT cohort. The PIT Planning intern organizes the programs for each work group with the community partners, ensures that transportation is provided when needed, orders food and purchases tickets to the many venues that the PITers will visit. This is an eight-week paid internship.
