The Associate Manager of Internship Support is an ideal role for an emerging professional interested in developing a wide variety of professional skills in a growing organization. Semester-long internships at social impact organizations are the core of our experiential learning model and the Associate Manager of Internships plays a key role in their success by supporting both our college students, known as fellows, and their mentors at their internship site. Through analyzing feedback from both mentors and fellows, coaching to both fellows and mentors and when needed tapping the expertise of other staff, the Associate Manager supports the overall quality of the Semester in the City (SITC) experience. The Associate Manager focuses on delivering an excellent internship experience for the mentor and fellow and reports to Vicky Ajene, Senior Manager of Internships, and works closely with other program team members. The ideal candidate brings relationship-building skills, a collaborative spirit, the ability to work cross-functionally, and critical thinking to their work.
NOTE: As a part of College for Social Innovation's response to COVID-19, we are operating on a hybrid work schedule with 1-3 days out of our office at the NonProfit Center. Staff are otherwise welcome to work from home.

College for Social Innovation (CFSI) brings together colleges and social sector organizations to create fully-credited experiential learning opportunities that are meaningful, accessible, and life-changing. Our college students, referred to as Social Innovation Fellows, build skills, a digital portfolio, and a professional network that helps to position them to become the next generation of problem solvers for humanity’s tough challenges. Students are placed in a semester-long internship (400 hours) and also take skill-building and reflection classes twice a week as part of a diverse “Semester in the City” cohort.
College for Social Innovation has grown from a pilot cohort of 14 students in Fall 2016 to ~80 students from 13 colleges and universities in Spring 2022. Overall we have enrolled 385 students and achieved strong initial results. We are now adding additional college partners and are looking to further build an innovative and unique educational experience that can add value for students and their home colleges while building a bigger, better, and more diverse talent pipeline for the social sector.
In the next few years, we look to create a nationally recognized curriculum and instructional delivery model that generates strong results while growing to serve 300+ students per year and piloting growth beyond Boston. Ultimately, we aim to build a movement to make it common for millions of college students -- representing the full diversity of the nation -- to gain access to careers in the fast-growing social sector.
