Summer Internships

Each summer, we partner with the Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) to offer a select number of qualified undergraduate students internships at social justice organizations around the globe. The goals of this highly competitive program are to:

  1. Give students the opportunity to integrate social justice theory with practice in a professional setting
  2. Increase their understanding of how we live into social justice values while we serve others.

This paid internship program is designed to be accessible to all students.

Finding Internships

All social justice internships we know of can be found in K-Connect. You can also see a list below of past internship sites.

Funding for an Internship

ACSJL partners with the CCPD on the CCPD Internship Program to provide $3,000 stipends to five students pursuing a summer social justice internship. More information on how to apply for the CCPD Internship Program is available on the CCPD webpage.

ACSJL internship stipend's prioritize internships at organizations with explicit social justice missions.

Requirements for CCPD-Arcus Internships

Students who receive stipends through the CCPD-Arcus Internships will have to adhere to the requirements of the CCPD Internship Program. Students are also required to submit 3 Reflective Responses throughout the summer, and will be expected to be in consistent contact with ACSJL Program Coordinator Morgan Mahdavi prior to the internship and during the summer. The expectations are for the intern to have at least one introductory meeting with Morgan, upon receiving the CCPD-Arcus stipend, at least one check-in conversation over the course of the summer, as well as one follow-up conversation in the Fall.
