Shepherd Alliance Internships are available with agencies that work to benefit impoverished members of society. Students learn first-hand about the multiple dimensions of poverty in the United States by working for eight weeks to strengthen impoverished communities and work alongside individuals seeking to improve their communities. The agencies, located in various urban and rural sites in the United States, focus on education, healthcare, legal services, housing, hunger, social and economic needs, and community-building efforts. Students work with agencies that fit their intellectual interests in order to develop their experience and skills for civic involvement and employment.
All returning undergraduates in good academic standing are eligible to apply. Two students will be selected to represent Middlebury within the Shepherd Alliance.
