Selected interns will be placed on one of two teams: Community Projects Team or Impact Team.
Community Projects Team: The Community Projects Team interacts directly with the presidents and vice-presidents of UAID's 14 university Chapters. This team supports Chapters in planning, implementing, and evaluating a community project that addresses a health issue in the local community. This team also helps Chapters with their development and growth (e.g. operations management, member recruitment and retention, marketing, fundraising, event planning). As an intern, you will be responsible for regularly meeting with and guiding 3-4 Chapters throughout the academic year. This team is a good fit for those interested in learning more about public health issues and practices, and for those wanting to exercise leadership ability through frequent problem-solving. Interns will gain skills in community-based research, project development and evaluation, community outreach and partnership building, cultural competency, systems thinking, and more!

Impact Team: The Impact Team creates surveys and other evaluation tools to monitor and track key metrics of performance at both the National and Chapter levels. The team also works on several other projects, including training and resource development. The metrics collected are pivotal for the UAID Strategic Plan, UAID Annual Report, social media presence, and website maintenance. The Impact Team does not interact directly with any Chapters. Interns will gain skills in program evaluation, curriculum and course design, training methods, data collection and analysis, strategic planning, continuous quality improvement, and more!
