First Federal Community Internship Program
First Federal, a locally owned bank, has created a paid internship program to help local non-profits leverage the energy and talent of Linfield students to achieve a strategic goal through the completion of a specific short term project. To qualify, an organization must be a 501(c)3 non-profit providing service in Yamhill County. Linfield interns will be placed in a position of leadership or work in a team environment. Interns will not be used as administrative staff or to fill other gaps in staffing. Five projects will be funded with a $1000 stipend. Information about local non-profits are listed below. The application for the First Federal program is listed as well. Student checklist:
- Contacting the organization directly. Contact information is provided in the detailed descriptions on Cat Connect.
- Express interest in the First Federal Community Internship Program, and discuss the proposed project in detail.
- If both parties are interested in working together, download the application and submit your completed internship application to Kristi Mackay in Melrose 010 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Unfunded projects are eligible for internship credit. Please see Kristi Mackay for details.
