The EX[L] Center’s Akron Community Internship Program at the University of Akron is an initiative where UA students interface directly with community partners. Students gain practical discipline-related experience as well as an appreciation for the broader Akron community. Community partners serve as mentors to students, and receive the benefit of a student working on a project relevant to the respective organization.
Students spend 100 hours and earn $1,000 working on a specific activity with a clear deliverable. Internships are available in the summer or during the school year. The internships may be eligible for credit, depending on your department.
