Description

An internship with a community and/or cultural arts organization is a core requirement of the Semester in Detroit experience. With the leadership of the Semester in Detroit Associate Director, students and organizations both participate in the process of making effective matches, thus providing a challenging academic experience for students while contributing toward the organization’s mission and community agenda. Students develop a work plan early in the semester in conjunction with their direct supervisors. The Associate Director stays in regular communication (including site visits) with both students and organizational partners during the semester. Past internship opportunities have included experiences in community organizing, community development, public radio journalism, youth outreach and mentoring, and arts education.
