PublicSquare’s Summer Civics Initiative is a program offering mentorship and stipends to college students pursuing summer internship opportunities in non-profit organizations, governmental offices, and social service agencies. Priority is given to current and former PublicSquare Student Fellows and Program Assistants. All local undergraduates enrolled in California State University Channel Islands, Santa Barbara City College, University of California Santa Barbara, and Westmont College are eligible and underrepresented minority, first generation, and low-income students are especially encouraged to apply. This program furthers PublicSquare’s mission of providing mentorship to youth, encouraging civic activism, and inspiring the next generation civic leaders.
