Students will be required to join several hours per week during the semester and to volunteer on specific work tasks each non-profit organization is offering. (Onsite time in the internship is 8-10 hours, depending on internship plus time for mandatory journal entries. Some internships require an amount of research in the library.) Students will be able to choose “their” preferred organization from a list of options according to their abilities and capacity. Regular attendance at the internship locations and the accompanying weekly seminar is expected.
