What's the Program all About?

Through a variety of programs, NeighborWorks America’s Community Scholars Summer Internship Program is designed to help recruit and attract talented individuals to occupations within NeighborWorks America. The program offers interns professional experiences and formal training opportunities that can be adapted to meet the intern’s educational and professional goals and interests. In the program, each intern will be assigned a mentor to provide direction and supervision of the work assigned.

The Community Scholars Program provides paid 12 week internships commencing in June. NeighborWorks America’s Community Scholars Program gives each of the participants:

A broader perspective on how the organization serves the community and the nation as a whole.
The opportunity to acquire specific skills that are needed to pursue their professional goals and aspirations.
The opportunity for hands-on work experience in their field of study or interest.
