The Summer 2019 internship will be the seventh 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 Heinz Endowments is devoted to the mission of helping our region prosper as a vibrant center of creativity, learning, and social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Core to the Endowments’ work is the vision of a just community where all are included and where everyone who calls southwestern Pennsylvania home has a real and meaningful opportunity to thrive.
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 work in 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.
