Civic Engagement Internship Program

At Cameron House, we empower individuals by providing the leadership opportunities and training where they gain knowledge, skills, values and the motivation to make that difference in their community.

CEI wordcloud

Civic engagement is defined as working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. Doing so promotes the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes.

Interns at Cameron House will be given various assignments that align the interests of the participant with the needs of our greater community.  Each semester, we accept up to 4-interns who will engage in project-based learning. Here, interns will formulate, design and develop a  plan that supports either an existing Cameron House program or those of partner agencies in the community.

Each intern will be supervised by staff and will meet for periodic training sessions and progress reports during office hours on Mon-Tues from 10AM -5PM. Interns are expected to be able to remotely and communication through the workplace communication platform SLACK & Facebook Workplace. It is required to meet onsite for at least 15 hours a week. Interns will be granted a nominal stipend that will be disbursed bi-monthly.
