The goal of the CCG 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 nonprofit field.
If you are a Brown alumni who would like to hire a summer 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 forn, a member of the Careers in the Common Good staff will contact you.
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 $3,00 stipend for the summer -- $2,000 from Brown and $1,000 from the employer.
