New Year’s resolutions are always about improvement: learning new skills, taking on new challenges, and getting better at the things we already do. What better way to do just that than by signing up for a ONE Campus Internship this semester?
ONE Campus interns help to start and lead a ONE chapter on their campus while completing a semester-long curriculum of short readings and assignments. It’s is a great way to increase advocacy skills, deepen global poverty knowledge, enhance leadership knowhow, and gain valuable professional experience. But don’t take it from us. Read what our past campus leaders have to say:
“During my freshman year at Clark University, I couldn’t tell you the difference between USAID and GAVI. But that all changed the second semester of my freshman year, when I joined Clark’s ONE Campus chapter and later became the leader of that group. I learned firsthand how our work as advocates has a direct impact on the world’s poorest, and familiarized myself with the policies behind ONE’s issues.” –Mikayla Bobrow, Campus Leader at Clark University
“I’ve learned just how much the power of my own voice in my community can affect real change in the lives of those living in poverty…I believe that ONE Campus Challenge has done more for me as a globally engaged student than any other opportunity. I have become a better person, and I have been able to focus on empowering other people because, it isn’t about pity it is about empowerment.” -Nichel Warwick, Campus Leader at Brigham Young University – Hawaii
“If you have the passion and inspiration to continue to support the things you see as important, you will spark a fire in other people and if not – just keep being you. I thought ONE was a perfect place to do all of this!” –Steven Williams, Campus Leader at University of Iowa
And get this: you don’t even have to leave your campus in order to intern with us. That’s because this internship is an on-campus, field organizing opportunity by design. ONE Campus staff will work with you and your school for academic credit, or you can simply receive official recognition as a ONE intern.
