Transportation Alternatives (T.A.), New York City’s leading advocacy group for bicycling, walking and public transit, seeks energetic and self-motivated students for their 2013 Internship Program.
Interns will be exposed to the ins and outs of social change, New York City government and politics and a career in the non-profit sector through individual and group projects alongside T.A. staff. Highlights of the summer include:
Alongside their work within our office walls, T.A. interns will be brought in to the world of T.A. outside the office and in our communities across the city. Interns will experience a comprehensive curriculum led by our Deputy Director that explores T.A. activism through readings, movie nights, and field trips. Interns will regularly meet with experts on our staff to learn about T.A.'s advocacy and organizing work to help New Yorkers improve our streets.
The internship curriculum runs for 8 weeks. (July 1st through August 23th, 2013).
T.A. offers full-time paid internship positions for high school students during the 8 week curriculum period. Summer high school interns will receive a stipend of $2171.75 for the program in equal disbursements throughout the summer.
