Encouraging young Unitarian Universalists to live their religious values through paid internships in: social action, advocacy & service
LIAC’s Student Internship Program is made possible by the Student Activity Fund. SAF is a grant-program funded by the Unitarian Universalist Veatch Program at Shelter Rock.
Who can participate in Student Internship Program?
To participate in the Student Internship Program, you must:
• Be entering your senior year of High School in the Fall of 2020 for a 2020 Summer Internship or Be an undergraduate college or trade school student, a gap year student, or just graduated college in Spring of 2020. You must: • Be between ages 16 and 24 on June 1 of the year of application • Be a member or a child of member in good standing of a Long Island Unitarian Universalist Congregation
Will I receive a monetary award for my work? Yes. Most student interns work between 10 – 35 hours per week for as many weeks as their schedule permits during the summer & school breaks. Students can also work part time during the school year. Due to social distancing, remote internships may be approved for the summer of 2020. Any online internships must be evaluated individually by the SAF Program Director. Please contact the SAF Director directly at SAFdirector@liacuu.org with any questions or to set up a time talk about a specific agency internship you may be interested in.
