We encourage students of all majors to both study factors that contribute to conditions of inequality and to engage in experiential learning opportunities that help to alleviate poverty. We are now recruiting applicants for the summer 2018 Shepherd Intern Program. Internships are available to address immigrant rights, housing and homelessness, economic development, youth empowerment, public health, criminal justice, legal advocacy, & environmental protection.
