Outside of class, you will experience the following leadership and professional development activities:

INTERN with a nonprofit organization and work on the front-lines to solving local and national issues.

You are guaranteed an internship placement. We have been creating academic internship experiences for over 40 years and work with local and national nonprofit organizations across all issue areas including education, environment, healthcare, homelessness/hunger, and women’s issues. Our staff works closely with you to find the best internship match for your interests and qualifications.

SERVE the greater DC community through service projects and fundraising events.

Take part in hands-on service projects mentoring at-risk youth, revitalizing urban green spaces, tackling public health issues and much more. In addition to direct service, you’ll get to impact the community through a student-led grant process: plan fundraisers to raise money for a local charity of your selection.
