This Iyai+ Internship is named in loving memory of the lifetime contributions of the late Dr. Juanita Jones-Abernathy, a Founding Iyai+ Board Member.

Completed applications should be electronically submitted to the attention of:  Dr. Beverly A. Scott; by no later than August 28th.   For minors, this must include a signed Parental (Guardian) Authorization/Release Form along with the Application – included in the link.  Student selection is planned to be completed by September 15th.

Building on its first-time participation in the Chicago Transit Authority’s extensive Summer Youth Program (as a CTA Professional Development Partner), strong selection preference will be given to interested CTA One Summer Chicago interns who participated in the Iyai+ My Beloved Community Cohort.

For this first-time internship opportunity, Iyai+ is also excited to work with the nationally-recognized Cardozo TransSTEM Academy (District of Columbia Public Schools), the site of its highly successful Infrastructure Careers pilot program. Cardozo and Iyai+ will select a student “alum” from its Summer 2019 Pilot program.  These “Community Builder” Interns will work with the Iyai+ CEO and Board of Directors, with input from other Program participants, partners and supporters to help build upon and strengthen the overall Iyai+ experience – including networking, active community participation; and, self-directed learning opportunities.
