This internship will give you hands-on experience in grassroots organizing and academic credit through the Urban Studies Internship Program (UBST101).

Interns will apply the activism skills developed through the program to organize students on a specific campaign.

Some skills interns will develop include public speaking, time management, persuasive speaking, research, advocacy, writing, and more.
