The Corcoran Center offers a summer internship, which is focused on working with rising sophomores and juniors. This experiential learning opportunity places students in organizations that work at the intersection of real estate and urban action. Placing students with non-profit organizations and government agencies, the internship offers real-world experience and an opportunity for students to become an integral part of organizations working on community transformation. Interns will participate in regular collaborative sessions to report on progress, compare experiences, hear from experts in the field of neighborhood revitalization, and participate in skill-building workshops. All interns will present their deliverables and reflect on their summer experiences at the conclusion of the program. Taylor Perkins directs the Corcoran Center Summer Internship program. You can contact Taylor with any questions about the program or the application process.
