Summer 2014 Paid Internships

If you would like to take action to make a difference in the fight against poverty and develop important life skills, gain experience working across difference, and advance your own career exploration process, consider applying for the national Shepherd Internship Program. Information is also available on our own Privilege & Poverty program website. These internships are available to students whose institutions are a part of the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty (SHECP). It is a diverse group, including HBCU, faith-based, public, private, and work institutions (click on Member Institutions to view). A cohort of students from a variety of colleges and universities live together, providing a core group with whom to learn, explore, and grow. Interns receive a stipend, funding to support some travel/living expenses, housing—and participate in opening and closing conferences, in addition to the internship experience.
