The UU College of Social Justice will not be hosting an intern this year. Please check back next year!
Cambridge, Mass., USA
The UU College of Social Justice (UUCSJ) was launched in June 2012 as a joint collaboration of the Unitarian Universalist Association and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee. Its mission is to help Unitarian Universalists deepen and sustain the work of justice in their congregations and communities. One way to do this is through experiential learning programs, including service learning trips, justice trainings, and internships.
This project is for one intern. The intern will support various UUCSJ programs and initiatives. Likely project focuses will include providing logistical preparation and support for a young adult climate justice training to be held in mid-August, and providing supervision and programming for the youth Activate Boston program in late July. The intern may also be asked to work on curricular development or outreach, including social media.
In contrast to most of the summer internships through UUCSJ, this placement is in our main office and assists with our own programs, and therefore has less direct contact with the type of justice work that we support through our partnerships. Applicants should be aware of this difference and comfortable working in an office environment.
Six weeks, from July 6 to August 14, 2015. Approximately 25 hours per week.
Preference will be given to applicants with strong writing skills.
Because this placement works with youth, the selected intern will be required to complete a CORI background check.
HOUSING AND STIPEND
The selected intern is eligible to apply for a stipend from UUCSJ for up to $175 per week to assist with food and incidentals, in addition to up to $75 per month to assist with the cost of local transportation.
This intern is eligible for housing, which will likely be provided in a local dormitory or in a homestay with a local family.
The selected intern is responsible for travel to and from the Cambridge/Boston area.
