Summer Nonprofit Immersion

Summer Nonprofit Immersion

The Summer Nonprofit Immersion Program (SNIP) is a summer program that brings together undergraduates at Wake Forest University with community partners to enhance both the learning of the student and the capacity of the community partner. The student participants selected are seeking scholarly, professional, and personal development through intensive work in the nonprofit sector. Ideal community partners are able to provide committed mentoring and supervision to the student and a work plan that enriches the capacity of their organization while connecting to the student’s academic and/or professional interests. Interns work for 30 hours a week with their hosts. We enthusiastically welcome proposals for hosting interns from individual nonprofits in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County and the surrounding area.  We also welcome proposals for interns to work on collaborative projects led by 2 or more nonprofits/community organizations, provided there is a clear explanation of who the intern’s primary mentor will be.
The Pro Humanitate Institute will select 13 community partners to serve as placements for the summer of 2018. Ideal partners will articulate a clear work plan for their intern that shows a strong connection to the organization’s mission while being flexible enough to connect with the students academic and/or professional goals. Ideal partners will show a willingness and ability to provide close supervision and mentoring and to communicate clearly and regularly with PHI staff.
SNIP will run form early June to end of July 2018. SNIP Fellows will take an introductory intensive seminar in early June to prepare them for their work with partners. The application for SNIP Community Partners will open in the Fall of 2017 and student applications will open in the Spring of 2017.
