LET Leaders for an Equitable Tomorrow

Summer Internship Flier

High School students residing in Woburn are invited to work with the Network for Social Justice and SCI this summer! The internship begins with a kick-off meeting in late June and will run through mid August 2022:
 

  • Participating students must commit to meetings on 7/13, 7/20, 7/27, 8/3, and 8/10 from 12-3PM with lunch included (one absence allowed). 

  • Total time commitment will be around 25 hours over the course of 6 weeks (perfect for students to have another summer job!).
