KI is now accepting applications for its paid full-time 8-week internship for Summer 2020 open to Georgetown students. In light of the COVID-19 health crisis, we have extended our KI Summer Internship deadline to March 29 at 11:59 pm.
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 initial training the first week. Students will also be expected to partake in lunches with organizers and researchers working in social justice issues throughout their internship. Students receive on campus housing and a stipend for food, travel, and other needs during the summer.
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. 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. Learn more about the internship in our information sheet.
