3. Internship Opportunity: Center of Leadership and Service Internships

This summer, the Center for Leadership and Service is partnering with six local organizations in Athens to provide paid internships for eight UGA students. The internship program provides UGA students the opportunity to cultivate skills and gain knowledge about non-profit and community engagement work, while making a positive impact in Athens. Internship host organizations were intentionally selected as model programs that all address the issue of summer learning loss in unique ways.

Through this experience, student participants have the opportunity to earn a monetary award of $1000 upon successful completion and potentially course credit. Internship host sites include : Action Ministries (2 positions), Athens Land Trust (1 position) Books for Keeps (1 position), Camp DIVE (2 positions), Chess and Community (1 position), and Fanning Institute Summer Youth Development Programs (1 position).

If you are interested in applying, please visit here for more information.

The deadline to submit an application is Friday, March 3rd at Noon.

Contact Kyle Anderson at andkyle@uga.edu or 706-542-6265 with any questions.
