Looking for an especially memorable and meaningful experience? If you’re interested in working with youth, building your leadership skills, and building those lifetime bonds with others, HOPE Internship is perfect for you! This internship program will enable interns to critically think about issues in higher education, as well as topics on identity and history/herstory. Interns will engage in deep dialogue around these issues, prompting them to think about their personal experiences in relation to the topics discussed. Through HOPE Internship, interns will be prepared to take on more leadership roles within and outside the HOPE space.

APPLICATION DEADLINE IS THIS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH, 2013 BY 4:59PM! APPLY AND SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATIONS NOW!
