Be a role model for youth! Host a NHA Student Intern.

 

Be a role model for youth who want to enter your career field! By taking part in New Haven Academy's Student Internship Program, you are improving the quality of high school education in the greater New Haven area. Your participation is sincerely appreciated.

 

The Internship Program is designed to allow students to intern full-time, Monday through Thursday, for three weeks (May 14th- May 31st). Each student is placed with a host organization based on their personal interest. By working with people who share similar interest, and who have professional experience in a given filed, the students have the opportunity to experience learning in a meaningful way.

 

Each potential host will have a chance to interview the potential student intern beforehand. This will give both the host and student a chance to get to know each other and help with the matching process.

 

Students will arrive at the host organization prepared with question and ideas about what they'll be learning during the internship. If you've never hosted a student before, you may find the following suggestions to be helpful guidelines:

 

  • Provide a tour of your workplace and describe the main purpose of what goes on there.

 

  • Share the personal side of how you developed your interest, or why you chose the work you do, and why it is important to you.

 

  • Demonstrate as much of your work as you can, rather than just talk about it.

 

  • Share what it is you do to stay current in your filed (professional development).

 

  • If you're in an organization with more people, let the student know how your work fits in with others in your organization, what role it plays in the organization and what other roles are needed to make your work successful.

 

  • Don’t be afraid to show them the fun side- laughing together is a greater equalizer.

 

We are grateful for your willingness to host an intern. We hope that the experience will be mutually rewarding for the student and for you.

Breaking Down the Barriers to Health Equity: Q&A with La Tasha Barnwell

LISC Emerging Leaders Council member La Tasha Barnwell describes her work in public health and the imperative of a holistic strategy for closing the racial wealth gap.

From the Watts Rebellion to George Floyd, South LA Charts a New Path Toward Racial Justice

In an op-ed for Next City, Tunua Thrash-Ntuk, ED of LISC LA, and Hanna Love of the Brookings Institution trace the historical roots of community self-determination in South Los Angeles and argue that it's high time for public and private sector leaders to support the model for investment these activists have forged. They draw on the findings of their recent co-authored report on South LA's potential for equitable recovery in the wake of the Covid pandemic. Both are must-reads.

Dismantling Structural Racism in Community Development Finance

In an opinion piece for ImpactAlpha, LISC COO Annie Donovan draws on the expertise she honed as head of the CDFI Fund to illustrate the layered ways that BIPOC community development entities are locked out of federal tax credit allocations and other resources. "The disproportionate results reflect the same deeply seated structural barriers that prevent minority-owned enterprises from accessing credit in other parts of the economy," she writes, explaining that Congress, and the rest of us, must help remedy this inequity.
