REQUIREMENTS:

WHERE IS THE INTERNSHIP?
We have a list of host partners that would love to host you, in cities around the country. If you have a specific organization you'd like to work for, let us know and we can try to arrange it. Requested placements occur on a case-by-case basis and pending host organization approval. You will have the opportunity to interview with your potential host organization prior to being assigned in order to make sure it's a good fit for both you and them!

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:
If accepted into the program, you must work in your hometown aka where you return each summer break, not in the city where you go to school.
