About

Internship experiences should be accessible for everyone. Your money goes to cover expenses for a working internship experience in Washington D.C. A current priority would be to purchase Metro passes for students interning in Washington, D.C.

Having an internship as a young professional can be a make-or-break experience when it comes to launching one’s career. With surging costs of living and the persistence of unpaid internships, the opportunity to pursue these experiences has become financially exclusive. The students who have the most to gain from a college education that includes an internship experience are often the same students who face the most financial barriers. 

Study in D.C. interns are individually responsible for getting to and from their internships. For unpaid interns, the most affordable way to commute is through D.C.’s public transportation system. Although cheaper, the Metro can prove to be a burdensome cost for full-time unpaid interns
