KI is now accepting applications for its paid, part-time internship programs for the Fall 2019 open to Georgetown undergraduate students.
Each semester, KI recruits Georgetown students who are dedicated to social justice to work with top local community groups in D.C. advocating for working people through its Organizing Internship and Research in Action Internship. KI also hires student coordinators for its Immigration and Labor Project to work on issues that affect immigrant workers.
The Organizing Internship provides an opportunity for students to observe the impact of community and labor organizing, support and contribute to ongoing campaigns and projects, and develop their own organizing skills. Open placements for the Organizing Internship this semester include: We are still finalizing some of these placements.
- The Washington Lawyers Committee’s Worker Rights Clinic (WLC)
- Ethiopian Community Center (Preference for speakers of Arabic, Amharic or French)
- Collective Action for Safe Spaces
- DC Jobs with Justice
Meanwhile, the Research in Action Internship provides students the opportunity to learn from leaders in the world of workers’ rights, support and contribute to ongoing campaigns and research projects, and develop their own research skills. Our open placements for the Research in Action Internship are:
- Worker Rights Consortium
- In the Public Interest
- National Black Workers Center
- Kalmanovitz Initiative and NHS – Worker Center Research
Lastly, our Immigration and Labor Project plugs students into the efforts of community-based organizations to advance economic and social justice for immigrant communities in the DC area and nationwide. This semester we are hiring two additional coordinators to lead the project.
