Each summer, ExxonMobil Foundation provides selected local nonprofit agencies with grants designated to hire college interns for eight weeks during the summer. As Community Summer Jobs Program interns, students are introduced to nonprofit social, cultural, and health service organizations so that they may familiarize themselves with the nonprofit sector and, hopefully, consider careers or volunteer leadership positions in this area of work. Internship positions vary from caseworkers to public relations assistants to event planners. Each internship lasts eight weeks and may take place any time between mid-May and the end of August.
Interested in using your education and skills to benefit a nonprofit organization? If you are a rising sophomore, junior, or senior at an accredited American college or university, you are eligible to participate in the 2015 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program. This year, ExxonMobil Foundation will fund 15 college internships at D.C. and Northern Virginia nonprofits. The stipend is $2,750 for eight weeks.
In addition to gaining valuable work experience, interns are provided with opportunities to network with other interns and participating agencies.
Interns are required to attend a Kick-off Reception Breakfast held in Fairfax (location and date TBA), and a service project (June) organized by Volunteer Fairfax. Interns must work a minimum of 35 hours per week over an eight-week period.
Interested students should apply directly to the nonprofit agencies of their choice. Individual agencies establish their own timeline for recruiting and interviewing candidates. The hiring deadline is April 17, 2015.
Questions about the program should be directed to Community Summer Jobs Program staff.
