Designed for students with a commitment to community engagement, the Lumpkin Summer Institute for Service-Learning challenges students to explore and participate in social change in the Greater Boston Area. During the 10-week program, students reside together in Boston while undertaking full-time internships with local nonprofit organizations. Led by Wellesley College faculty, staff, and nonprofit practitioners, a weekly seminar integrating experiential and traditional classroom learning benefits not only the Wellesley interns, but also the communities in which they serve.

“Many of the preconceived notions I had about people experiencing homelessness and poverty were transformed by my summer internship, particularly due to its direct service aspect. Much of what I learn as a Peace & Justice Studies major concerns multi-layered analysis of conflict and my internship offered me an opportunity to consider how larger systems, like housing, banking, education, criminal justice, etc., influence social structures and perpetuate poverty for the underclass.”

“From the beginning, my career mentor was there to brainstorm, encourage, and motivate me to pursue an internship that aligned with my interests.”
