Intern with Long Island Strong Schools

Each semester we recruit undergraduate and graduate students to join the Long Island Strong Schools Alliance (LISSA) internship team. Interns have the opportunity to work on various projects geared toward their interest. Interns work an average of 12-14 hours per week and receive college credit. Internships are primarily remote, and students studying all majors are welcome and encouraged to apply. Interns can expect to gain valuable knowledge and experience in an education-focused not-for-profit.
