2022 Summer Internships:

The Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream Summer Internship Program provides engaging opportunities for the next generation of emerging leaders. Our interns work alongside staff to support our work and have the opportunity to grow their professional skills through mentorship and workshops. This year we're excited to welcome seven interns hailing from as far as South Sudan and as close to home as Maryland. Join us in welcoming them to the Center’s team!

The 2022 Summer Cohort of Interns hail from all over the country, from Honolulu and Miami to locals from Washington, D.C. This diverse group of young people take part in some of our largest projects like continuing development of our online presence and fundraising and gain valuable experiences along the way. This cohort of interns plays a vital role in preparing us for the future of MCAAD and we know that we will gain just as much from them as they do from us. Join us in welcoming them to the Center’s team!
