UW Pipeline Project

Searching for Interns for 2020-21!

Through the Pipeline Project, UW undergraduates tutor, mentor and support K-12 students in Seattle schools, as well as rural and tribal communities across the state. Our project transforms the learning and inspires the growth of both UW and K-12 students, while addressing inequities in public education in Washington State.

Being a Pipeline intern is a great opportunity to build your leadership skills, learn about education program coordination, and build community. Pipeline interns are integral to keeping the program running smoothly. While the Pipeline intern team primarily reports to the Education Equity AmeriCorps member on the Pipeline Staff, interns are brought into the fold of the entire team.

We are looking for 2 more undergraduate interns to help us increase Pipeline's visibility on campus, create community and support among tutors, and provide program support. Application here!

(Pipeline Internships are for the entirety of the school year, Fall 2020 - Spring 2021. Applications are due by 11:59 PM, May 25th, 2020.)

Interns would work approximately 5 hours a week (flexible scheduling) including 1 all-intern meeting once a week. While these positions are unpaid, we can offer compensation in the form of General Studies Credit (and lots of free food that comes through the EXPD office suite).
