As one of the oldest social justice organizations in the United States, we take seriously our role to teach the next generation about this important work. Beginning in 2015, City Mission has offered a Social Justice internship program for high school students who are rising into their junior or senior year, or those who have just graduated from high school.

This internship is for youth committed to social justice and with an interest in gaining work experience in a small nonprofit that works on social justice issues, particularly around family homelessness prevention. Interns will begin to explore some of the root causes and consequences of poverty, inequality, and racism through an introduction to public policy research, service learning, communications, and overarching nonprofit organizational structure. The program includes learning activities to foster a deeper understanding of social justice and City Mission’s commitment to educate, empower, and engage our community.

Applications for 2017 are now closed.
