CCG in NYC Internship Program

The goals of the BrownConnect Careers in the Common Good Summer in New York City (CGG in NYC) program are to connect Brown students with non-profits, start-ups, and public service agencies (many of whom employ or are run by Brown alumni), to help Brown students build skills and build a pathway into the non-profit and public service fields. We are especially interested in students from culturally diverse backgrounds who are underrepresented in these fields. 

THE PROGRAM
The students selected for the internships take part in an orientation before leaving campus, several site visits and a networking event with alumni in New York during the summer. Internships will start no earlier than June 1 and end no later than July 31, but within those two months the hours and duration of the internships vary by organization. Students receive a $4,500 stipend for the summer.
