About Collective Rising Internship

The Collective Rising Internship, formerly known as the Reproductive Rights Activist Service Corps, is a paid summer internship program that places undergraduate students at reproductive rights and social justice organizations around the country.

Students selected for the program receive:

  • A full-time 10-week substantive internship at a reproductive rights, health, and/or justice organization with a $4500 stipend
  • An intensive 3 day training at the annual Collective Power Conference. Training will include workshops on non-profit organizations, grassroots organizing, effective communication, self-care, and reproductive and social justice. **Note 2021 will be virtual and will happen in multiple sessions over April and May.**
  • Continued support and training throughout the summer
  • An online community where the Summer Cohort will post reflective weekly reports
  • An opportunity to present their work at the next Collective Power Conference

I’m deeply grateful for this opportunity. There is no way I would have been able to work at the Pride Center for a summer as an unpaid intern, so I am grateful to CLPP/RRASC for the support and training. And I am beyond grateful for the Pride Center for an amazing summer working with activists in Vermont’s rural queer community. I am leaving with a portfolio of work, an array of work experience and many connections that I will never forget.
