Semester in the City is a social impact internship program in Boston that provides equitable access for students to build skills in the social sector (see this short video to learn more) while earning academic credit.
Participating students join us as Social Innovation Fellows, and participate in a transformative 15-week program that allows them to address current social issues while developing essential skills and networks that prepare them for life and work after graduation.
During their Semester in the City, Fellows will intern with a nonprofit, social mission business or government agency four days a week, for 14 weeks. Fellows will gain 420 hours of work-based experience, allowing them to learn more about themselves and their passions while also building their skills and networks. We work with students to place them in an internship aligned with their interests, be it criminal justice reform, education, gender equality, environmental sustainability, or beyond. While every placement will be a little different, each Fellow will have a dedicated mentor to help them thrive.
Tulane students can petition to have this experience count for their second tier service-learning requirement and earn up to 16 academic credits (departmental approval required). Talk to your advisor to discuss possibilities.
