Recent Internships

This past summer Emily Devenney (MPP ’16) was putting to work an old-fashioned skill — community organizing — for a relatively new law — the Affordable Care Act. “We canvass, attend neighborhood events and health fairs, and host our own events,” says Devenney, who interned in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with Get Covered America, a nonpartisan campaign of Enroll America.

 

Jessenia Carredano interned this summer in the human resources department at Accion, an international microfinance organization based in Cambridge, Mass. Working behind the scenes gave her a “first-hand look at how an organization works to reduce poverty and create a more financially inclusive world," said Carredano.
