Sponsor an Intern
The Beth & Julia Meltzer Internship Program
At LAANE, we have two jobs:
- The first job is to help build communities where working families can thrive, where the environment is protected and where the economy works for everyone.
- Our second job is to provide training for committed young people seeking careers in social justice.
It has become popular in recent years to take advantage of interns, to work them like employees while denying them pay, which discriminates against low-income applicants, who can’t afford to subsidize their employer. Read the article in the New York Times.
At LAANE, we believe in fair wages for all workers, including students, which is why we created The Beth & Julia Meltzer Internship Program. As part of this program, young people can receive training in any of the following fields while earning a decent wage and continuing their education:
- Community organizing
- Legal analysis
