Grants of paid internships to Colorado undergraduate students in Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson Counties to become more involved in charitable organizations serving the Denver Metro area. The program is intended to promote students from communities traditionally under-represented in the nonprofit sector.
Interns develop leadership skills while working in the community, and students are exposed to several aspects of the work of a nonprofit organization.
• Enhance leadership skills
• Gain real-world work experience
• Broaden their understanding of the nonprofit community and the issues addressed
• Address issues of racial equity and community leadership
The Program also strives to build the capacity of Metro Denver nonprofit organizations through a motivated and highly-qualified paid intern. The nonprofit organizations that host interns benefit from additional staff support over the summer, and have the opportunity to bring a fresh perspective to their work.
Interns will work an average of 30 hours per week for ten weeks, and attending Learning Workshops, earning $12 per hour, for a total of 345 hours. Each organization will negotiate a work schedule, including a specific start and end date, with their selected intern.
