The Community Engagement Internship (CEI) provides funding to Penn undergraduate students to support academic year-long and summer internships at our selected community partner organizations.

At our community partner organizations, Penn students engage in a meaningful social justice work, learn more about the city of Philadelphia, acquire real-world skills, and develop and grow through a mentorship relationship with a supervisor.

At Civic House, the selected students attend every other week social justice workshop meetings with the other interns. During these meetings, students explore aspects of their identity, the root causes of social justice work, and engage in reflection to develop critical consciousness with a cohort of students interning at other organizations.

Students commit to working 10 hours/week for the full academic year or 35 hours/week during the summer with the community partner organization and attend weekly reflection meetings at Civic House with the cohort of interns.

**Please note that students who are eligible for work study funding and/or demonstrate financial need will be prioritized.**
