Raleigh, NC (STL.News) North Carolina college students can get valuable work experience with government and nonprofits this summer through the NC COVID-19 Student Response Corps. The program, launched in 2020, provides a database to help match college students in need of work experience with local governments and nonprofits seeking additional help during the pandemic.
Interested students and host organizations can attend a virtual informational session on March 10 or 18 to learn more. Nonprofit and government organizations interested in hosting NC COVID-19 Student Response Corps interns in 2021 can also add their opportunity to the database.

We also hope it will lead some students to consider a career in public service.”
