If you possess relevant leadership and professional work experience, we invite you to submit your application for our highly selective GRADUATE ASSOCIATE internship established in 2017.
At City Scholars® Foundation, we’re on a mission, as a tax-exempt, for-purpose corporation founded in 1993, to educate and empower nonprofit CEOs to lead well with limited resources, as they help thousands of low-income youth stay in school, out of trouble and on track to a brighter future.
Working 20 hours/week (Monday – Thursday) as a GRADUATE ASSOCIATE, you’ll earn an educational stipend of $20/hour and will (1) learn the “business of nonprofit,” (2) expand your professional network and (3) gain an appreciation for the challenges and rewards of executive leadership, through your contributions to and involvement with a diverse portfolio of meetings, events, projects and campaigns for the Foundation and our signature investment, the City Scholars® Fellowship for Education.
As a high-impact, tuition-free leadership institute, our Fellowship for Education partners with executive volunteers to help a vibrant and diverse community of nonprofit CEOs, who are distinguished as City Scholars® Foundation Fellows, build essential business and leadership skills, confidence and connections to grow after-school and school-based nonprofits from survival to success to significance.
