Careers in the Common Good Summer in New York City Internship Program

The goal of the BrownConnect Careers in the Common Good Summer in New York City (CGG in NYC) program is to connect Brown students with non-profits and start-ups in New York City that currently employ—or are run by—Brown alumni, to build a pathway for Brown students into the non-profit field and gain valuable skills. We are especially interested in students from culturally diverse backgrounds who are underrepresented in the non-profit field.  

If you are a Brown alumni who would like to hire a summer 2015 intern as part of CCG in NYC you can read more about the program and then fill out the interest form. After you fill out the form, a member of the Careers in the Common Good staff will contact you. The deadline for employers to apply to participate in the summer 2015 program is Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2014.

The list of 2015 alumni employers will be posted on the BrownConnect web site on Thursday, Jan. 22. The deadline for students to apply is Monday, March 2. Students will be informed if they are selected for a summer internship by Friday, March 20.

The students selected for the internships take part in an orientation before leaving campus, a networking event with alumni in New York during the summer and a discussion about the experience after returning to campus in September. Each student is responsible for organizing a site visit at their host site for all the students interning with the CCG in NYC program.

The hours and duration of the internships vary by organization. In general, students work 8-9 weeks. Start dates vary between May 31 and mid-June, and end dates between early-to-mid-August. 

Students receive a $4,000 stipend for the summer -- $3,000 from Brown and $1,000 from the employer.
