The Community Impact Internships Program is a competitive, paid summer internship program that selects 50 JHU undergraduate students to be paired with nonprofit organizations, community organizations, and government agencies throughout Baltimore City, and offers an intensive, cohort-based learning environment. Internships focus on community-identified projects and are selected for each student based on their skills and interests, providing a unique and individualized experience. In addition to interning in the community, participants attend an extensive orientation program and weekly reflection sessions with presentations to familiarize interns with Baltimore's past and present.
Interns will work 35 hours a week for eight weeks and earn a $4,000 salary. The dates for the 2020 program are June 1 to July 31. CIIP is available to current JHU freshmen through juniors.
The application for the 2020 Community Impact Internships Program is available on the Become an Intern page of the Center for Social Concern/Homewood Student Affairs website.
The deadline for application submissions is Dec. 29.
The goal of this program is twofold: to give JHU undergraduates an opportunity to be directly involved in a community in Baltimore City, and to support the important work being done by nonprofits and government agencies. The CIIP is housed in the Center for Social Concern at Johns Hopkins.
