Pipeline Undergraduate Internship

Internship Program

The Pipeline Project at the University of Washington connects undergraduate students with  educational and service opportunities in local and regional K­12 schools and community organizations.  Such community experiences help undergraduates discover personal and academic directions;  provide under­serviced K-12 students with individualized tutoring and college role models; support  the work of public school teachers; and bring academic departments at the UW into direct contact  with the greater K­-12 community. The Pipeline Project is part of the Center for Experiential Learning &  Diversity, which connects undergraduate students to community­-based learning, research, and  scholarships.

Interning at the Pipeline Project provides a unique opportunity to learn about K-­12 public education  and the field of service­-learning in higher education.   Working at the Pipeline Project also means  having fun and joining a talented team of hardworking and passionate people!

The Pipeline Project is currently recruiting interns to assist in various program efforts. Internships are  unpaid but will receive professional supervision and support. Academic credit may be available upon  articulated learning deriving from the internship. Hours and dates are flexible, with our office open  Mondays – Fridays 8:30–5.

Send a resume, cover letter, and the names of two references to: ​pipeline@uw.edu
