KI is now accepting applications for its paid, part-time internship programs for the Fall 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:
- Many Languages One Voice (MLOV)
- Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC)
- The Washington Lawyers Committee’s Worker Rights Clinic (WLC)
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:
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.

KI’s incoming Program Manager Juan Belman will transition into overseeing our student programs as the semester begins.
Applications are now live for the 2016 KI Summer Organizing Internship! The KI Summer Organizing Internship provides an opportunity for Georgetown students to observe the impact of community and labor organizing, support and contribute to ongoing worker justice campaigns and projects, and develop their own organizing skills through the day-to-day experience of the internship.
Through firsthand involvement in local campaigns, students will develop their own view of the challenges facing workers in the modern economy and the role of worker justice in a larger social justice context. From these experiences, students contribute to the next generation of the worker justice movement.
This is a paid internship for Georgetown University students, and it lasts 8 weeks beginning on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 and concluding on Friday, July 29, 2016. Participants will also attend a three-day training from June 1-3. Applications for summer 2016 are due Friday, March 4 at 11:59 PM.
Led by our awesome trip leaders Laura Fairman and Lily Ryan, students on WJDC 2016 will immerse themselves in the DC community to work, learn, and reflect in solidarity with workers, community organizers, and policymakers. Don’t forget to apply before the January 15th deadline and list WJDC as one of your top three choices! We highly recommend Fair Food: Migration, Labor, & Advocacy and Magis: Racial & Economic Justice in Baltimore as two other great trips being offered this year. Email trip advisor Jess Chilin (email@example.com) with any questions.
