The Summer 2018 internship will be the sixth year for the program in Johnstown. Supported by grants from The Heinz Endowments, it is a replication of the Endowments’ successful Summer Youth Philanthropy Internship. The Endowments supports efforts to make southwestern Pennsylvania a premier place to live and work, a center for learning and educational excellence, and a region that embraces diversity and inclusion.
The purpose of the internship is to involve youth in the community and teach them about philanthropy, marketing techniques, and how to help meet community needs. The interns will be broken up into two teams, each led by a senior intern who participated in the program last year. After exploring community needs, each team will develop a grantmaking program, create radio documentaries, and work with local nonprofits on a wide variety of projects.
