Internship details: In the program, students will:

– Work at their internship 10 hours per week during the spring semester.
– Attend regular cohort meetings with their colleagues in the program for networking and skill-building sessions. Topics may include subjects such as policy analysis, written communications, public speaking, networking, career profiles, and others.
– Because the need to support themselves and/or their families is often a barrier for young people of color seeking internship experience, students will be paid for their working hours.
