College for Social Innovation: Semester in the City Internship Program

Date Posted: 

November 4, 2018



Semester in the City is a program that gives college students the opportunity to spend a semester learning hands-on through well-supported internships in the social sector. Participating students join us as Social Innovation Fellows and participate in a transformative 15-week program that allows them to address current social issues while developing essential skills and networks that prepare them for life and work after graduation.


During their Semester in the City, Fellows will intern with a nonprofit, social mission business, or government agency four days a week for 14 weeks. Fellows will gain 400 hours of work-based experience, allowing them to learn more about themselves and their passions while also building their skills and networks. 

We work with students to place them in an internship aligned with their interests, be it criminal justice reformeducationgender equalityenvironmental sustainability, or beyond. While every placement will be a little different, each Fellow will have a dedicated mentor to help them thrive.
