Everett Public Service Internships: NY, DC

Everett Public Service Summer Internship Program - New York and Washington, DC, USA

There is no better teacher than experience. College and graduate students who have participated in the Everett Public Service Internship Program agree the months they spent in "the real world," beyond campus gates, were among the most rewarding of their lives.
A sense of community and camaraderie is fostered among the Interns in our Program. Each internship lasts ten weeks and provides $280 weekly for expenses. Accepted candidates will determine a starting date with their Intern Coordinator*. Everett Interns work on substantive projects, develop professional skills, and gain knowledge about the enormous societal impact of public service. New York City and Washington, D. C. Interns gather to attend exciting weekly events, both educational and social, presenting distinguished leaders and young heroes from the public sector.

* Internships start no earlier than May 26th and no later than June 16th in 2008.

In the summer of 2008, over 180 Everett Interns will use their knowledge and skills in over 60 organizations dedicated to improving the world. During ten weeks, Everett Interns will work diligently with skilled and dedicated mentors to gain first-hand experience on the front lines of public service.

Everett interns are a diverse group of current undergraduate and graduate students. They come from across the nation, attend public and private colleges and universities, major in subjects ranging from engineering to philosophy, and from political science to art history. Interns span the ethnic, racial and political spectrum. What binds them together is their personal commitment to "the repair of the world." Indeed, they exemplify the creed articulated by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.: "Everyone can be great because everyone can serve."
