While the traditional deadline has passed BAYLOR IS STILL ABLE TO RECEIVE APPLICATIONS for the 2012 Shepherd Poverty Alliance Internships.
The Shepherd Alliance unites student interns from Baylor, Berea, Middlebury, Morehouse, Spelman, Washington and Lee law and undergraduate programs, and participating Bonner Scholar institutions with agencies that work to benefit impoverished members of society.
Students learn first-hand about the multiple dimensions of poverty in the United States by working for eight weeks to strengthen impoverished communities and work alongside individuals seeking to improve their communities. The agencies, located in various urban and rural sites in the United States, focus on education, health care, legal services, housing, hunger, social and economic needs, and community-building efforts. Students work with agencies that fit their intellectual interests in order to develop their experience and skills for future civic involvement and employment.
