Project Exploration values the impact that interns can bring to an organization. Over the years we have partnered with Adler University, Associated Colleges of Illinois and University of Chicago. Interns have led a variety of projects including our re-brand, project readiness and have taken leads in many day to day activities fundraising, event planning and program operations.
Our Interns from Adler University are first year Master’s level students taking part in a practicum program designed around social justice in the Chicago community. This social justice practicum (SJP) emphasizes modeling the Adlerian principle of creating a positive social change. The students in this program work hands on with organizations around Chicago in order to earn experience and understanding of social injustice and what can be done to help. The students seek to support equity with all members of the Chicago community through their work with these organizations.
