Nonprofit Internship Program

Did you know?

Since 2017, Hire KC has placed (45) high school and college students at select non-profit partner sites for an amazing summer  internship experience, through a generous grant provided by Bank of America.

2019 Nonprofit Summer Internship Program

We know, first hand, the hard work and endless resources it takes to work at a nonprofit organization. And we know there’s a lot of great young talent to be harnessed to help support the great work you do.

KC Social Innovation Center (KCSIC) provides financial support for student internships on a competitive basis to eligible nonprofits seeking to build capacity over the summer months.

That’s why KCSIC offers up financial support to local nonprofits by way of young talent.

Qualifying nonprofits can apply to receive one or more interns at a $10 hourly wage for a total of 160 hours  per intern of achieved work over the course of the Summer (June-August).  The Start/End dates, as well as the number of hours assigned per week are flexible to your organization and needs.

How it works:

  1. Sponsored interns are employees of KCSIC and leased to awarded non-profits to perform a defined range of summer duties.
  2. Selected non-profits will receive back-office support services from KCSIC including internship posting, basic recruiting and intern co-management.  More details will be provided to awarded nonprofits.
  3. Currently, we have (20) internship slots available for 2019 to qualifying non-profits.  This is a competitive application, and awards will be based on the quality of the work-experiences high school and college students may have at your organization.


Interested nonprofits are encouraged to submit an application for sponsorship.  The deadline to submit an application is April 12, 2019 by 5:00pm CDT.  

All eligible applications will be reviewed by an independent panel, and award announcements will be communicated by email on or around April 30, 2019.
