The Millennium Campus Network (MCN)


The Millennium Campus Network is transforming the future of global development practice by identifying and supporting key student leaders to:

1) re-think the paradigms that perpetuate inequality, including connecting how our social identities affect our work and including challenging all sectors in their effect on poverty

2) promote a human-centric and collaborative approach to global development based on authentic and community-led partnerships

3) transform dialogue into action by presenting opportunities to act, challenging youth towards advocacy, and celebrating concrete action.

This year, for the first time, MCN is partnering with United Nations Academic Impact to launch the Millennium Fellowship to students across the globe.

Interns will work out of the MCN's national headquarters in Boston's Prudential Center in Boston, MA starting as soon as possible and throughout the summer, until the Fellowship launch in August.
