    Summer Intern Opportunities at the Sikh Coalition

    The Coalition's summer internship program allows students to further the mission and vision of the Sikh Coalition by helping to achieve legal victories, as well as educating and empowering the Sikh community. Our interns have the opportunity to gain hands on experience with a non-profit organization and will be participating in groundbreaking work for the Sikh community. Undergraduate and graduate students that apply should be hard-working, enthusiastic, self-motivated, flexible, and dedicated to protecting and advocating for the civil and human rights of all individuals.
