Public Service Internship: Position: Open

The Public Service Internship Program is designed to give undergraduate JEP students a deeper understanding of non-profits and other community-based organizations. The program provides funding for students to build on their service-learning experiences by becoming 25%- or 50%-time interns at a community-based organization – ideally the same organization at which they served as a service-learning student. The internships will vary depending on the needs of the organization, but most will involve helping the organizations with fund-raising, grant-writing, program development, or other activities that are core to the agency’s operations. More information is found here.
