Internships with Impact

News Story

Don’t have plans for the summer yet? The Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship wants to put you to work through their Summer Funded Internships. Apply today for an internship that leaves you feeling great for doing good.

We know, we know. Spring has only just begun, but it’s time to start preparing for the summer. What will you do between beach lounging and backyard grilling? If the answer is “I don’t know,” consider applying for a 2016 Summer Funded Internship from the Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship. Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis through Career Services' Handshake website.

The Funded Internship Program was launched in 2009 and places up to 15 Pace University students in full-time, paid summer internships with New York social enterprises and human service nonprofit organizations each year.

The goal of the internship is two-fold: To offer experiential learning and income for students interested in careers in the nonprofit sector, and to offer bright, highly motivated, mentored students in service for nonprofits. Internships must provide hands-on, substantive opportunities for students to make a meaningful contribution to the work of the organization.

Here’s just a peek at some of the positions being offered this year:

  • 9/11 Tribute Center, Media Intern
  • America Needs You, Program Intern
  • Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), Program Intern
  • Historic Richmond Town, Museum General Assistant Intern
