The internship is designed for college students who are interested in gaining experience with a nonprofit organization in the field of social entrepreneurship. This experience is structured to maximize the learning opportunities for interns as well as to support the operational needs of the organization. While gaining exposure to College Summit, the intern will play an active role in a variety of projects in support of program operations.
The internship will be project-based. Each project will give the fellow an opportunity to gain practical experience that will contribute to the intern’s professional development, as well as a deeper understanding of College Summit’s programs, operations, and culture. Examples include:
- Serving on the operations team for summer training events for high school students and their educators.
- Analyzing and reporting on program activities and results.
- Engaging with program alumni to support their transition from high school to college.
- Supporting volunteers for our summer training events.
- Rising Junior or Senior preferred

The strengths of the organization were its inclusive and collaborative environment, its inspiring mission, and the quality of the projects I was assigned to. I was given the chance to work on two projects that were both engaging and fulfilling, and was able to see the tangible products of working on both by the end of the summer. The thoughtful and consistent feedback on my project progress was also a huge strength of the projects I was assigned to.
