The Community Impact Internships Program (CIIP) is a competitive, paid summer internship that pairs JHU undergraduate students with Baltimore nonprofit organizations and government agencies, and offers an intensive, cohort-based learning environment. Internships focus on community-identified projects in Baltimore, and run from June to August. Students and community partners have the opportunity to extend their connections into the academic year through CIIP Extension. Annually, 50 interns (8 Peer Mentors and 42 interns) serve during the summer. In 2019-2020 21 students opted to extend into the academic year.History
In 2011, the inaugural year, 200 students applied for 25 internship positions. In 2012, the program expanded to placing 50 undergraduate students with non-profit organizations, community groups, and government agencies throughout Baltimore City at no financial cost to these community partners. Since the inception of the program, 375 interns have worked over 100,000 hours with over 100 different nonprofits, community groups, and government agencies in Baltimore City.
