The Reproductive Rights Activist Service Corps is a paid summer internship program that places undergraduate students from nine Western Massachusetts colleges at reproductive rights and social justice organizations for ten-week internships.
The RRASC program defines reproductive justice broadly to include human rights, economic justice, racial equality, queer rights, immigrants' rights, access to health services, and youth empowerment.
RRASC internships are substantive in nature, and interns receive a $3,300 stipend. Interns participate in organizing, advocacy, direct service, education, technical support, and research at a wide range of non-profit organizations throughout the country and internationally.
Throughout the whole summer I felt like I was a part of a team.
