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 nonprofit 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.
