KI is now accepting applications for its paid, full-time 8-week internship for Summer 2019 open to Georgetown students.
Each summer, KI recruits Georgetown students who are dedicated to social justice to work with local community groups in D.C. advocating for working people through its Organizing Internship and Research in Action Internship. Students will participate in an orientation training the first week. Students will also partake in events, museum visits, and luncheons with organizers and researchers working in social justice issues throughout their internship. Students receive a $5,000 stipend and a $250 travel stipend.
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 summer include:
- Many Languages One Voice (MLOV)
- ONE DC
- DC Jobs with Justice
- Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC)
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:
- Good Jobs First
- Catholic Labor Network and WILL Empower (The intern will split time researching with both organizations)
