Experiential learning is a critical aspect of the Nonprofit Fellows program. The required internship is approximately 18 hours per week and the experiences are woven into class discussion and assignments. This time commitment allows organizations to give Fellows greater levels of responsibility within the organization.
Fellows obtain their own internships, from among a select group of local organizations. Community learning partners include large and small nonprofit organizations from the Northern Virginia and DC area, addressing a variety of social issues, which may include: poverty, youth, immigration, the environment, or health.
