While the Cleveland Foundation’s Intern program benefits the host site organizations by providing the talent to help them complete important short-term projects, we have found that interns also benefit:
First, through the weekly professional development seminars, interns are exposed to the work done by our dynamic local nonprofit and public organizations and its leaders. We also assign each intern with a Cleveland Foundation staff member, who serves as a coach to help support the intern’s development and to talk through their career path.
Second, the host site projects are meaningful and challenging, which helps to build a strong resume. Finally, the internship program provides a forum to discuss and reflect on Cleveland’s opportunities along with its challenges.
If this sounds like a good way to spend your summer, please apply – we have a new seamless online application process. The deadline is Feb. 14.
