Another great summer of the Community Impact Internships Program has come to a close. You can watch our video of the summer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgAmS16VP8I
The Community Impact Internships Program (CIIP) is a competitive, paid summer internship program that pairs JHU undergraduate students with nonprofit organizations and government agencies to work on community-identified projects. Participating interns attend an extensive orientation and work 35 hours a week for 8 weeks while participating in weekly reflection sessions with their fellow interns. Each participating student receives a salary of $4000.
Starting in 2013, past CIIP interns can apply to return to the program to serve as a CIIP Peer Mentor. This is an opportunity to work in the community as an intern for 35 hours a week while working an additional 5 hours a week supporting other interns and serving as a resource for the students in each placement area. This program combines the components of being a CIIP intern with a community agency while giving you an opportunity to develop your leadership skills and knowledge of Baltimore current affairs. CIIP Peer Mentors will receive a salary of $5000.
The goal of this program is two-fold; 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 within the Center for Social Concern at the Johns Hopkins University. This program is made possible by a $1.25 million gift.
