PKG Summer 2021 Update

Updated on May 6, 2021

The PKG Center is offering remote opportunities this summer, including Social Impact Internships and work-study opportunities. Check the listings below to learn more about PKG summer programming!


UNDERGRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES

  • Community-Informed Field Immersion (CIFI): CIFI is a collaboration between the PKG Center and Community Outreach & Patient Empowerment (COPE). As part of this experience, you can join a team of fellow MIT students in supporting COPE’s mission to eliminate health disparities and improve the wellbeing of American Indians and Alaska Natives. This particular internship will be held remotely, serving the Dine community living on or near the Navajo Nation. Part-time and full-time positions are available.
  • Active Community Engagement (ACE): ACE is our First-year Pre-Orientation Program (FPOP), a five-day celebration of community engagement and urban exploration. It’s a chance to volunteer with other first-year students on projects that help strengthen our neighborhood; participate in activities and discussions that delve into social issues such as inequality, privilege, and food insecurity; and develop valuable friendships while discovering local resources that will support you during the school year and beyond. Sign up for ACE as your MIT FPOP by clicking here!

GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES

  • Social Impact Internships: Social Impact Internships deepen your analytical, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills by applying what you learn in the classroom to “real-world” challenges. Refine your leadership and communication abilities while collaborating with nonprofits, government agencies, or social enterprises! Strengthen your professional network and your resume, while you strengthen communities. Have an idea of where you might like to intern but not seeing that opportunity listed? Reach out to our team at studentworker@mit.edu.
  • DUSP-PKG Fellowships: DUSP PKG Fellowships fund International development and domestic public service projects that have a strong prospect of establishing long-term, sustainable benefits for the community and fellows alike. Projects should focus on the unique challenges and needs of the community as well as the career development for the student(s) involved. The DUSP-PKG Fellowship application deadline for summer 2021 is April 15, 2021 at Noon (ET). 
  • Get (Good) Stuff Done: Get (Good) Stuff Done (GGSD) is a multi-office workshop series that prepares you to address social and environmental challenges, work with communities, and develop products sustainably and ethically. The series is developed by a network of MIT partners who provide tools to help you succeed in diverse communities locally around the world.
