About the Program

The Shepherd Internship Program (SIP) unites students from member institutions with agencies that work in distressed communities.  Students learn first-hand about the multiple dimensions of poverty in the United States by working for eight weeks alongside individuals seeking to improve their communities. Students work with agencies that fit their intellectual interests in order to develop their experience and skills for future civic involvement and employment.
