Information session offered for Segal program public-service internships
Eli J. Segal Citizen Leadership Program is hosting an information session for potential applicants on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Heller Classroom G3. This is an opportunity to meet members of the Segal Network and ask them questions about their experiences. Interested applicants will get to see real life examples of how the Segal program supports fellows.
This innovative program is designed to encourage emerging leaders to engage in a lifetime of citizen service, serve as a platform to promote service and citizen leadership, and commemorate and honor the extraordinary contributions of the late Eli J. Segal '64, a resourceful entrepreneur and Democratic Party political operative who helped run Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign and then joined Clinton's White House staff. One of his major accomplishments was seeing through the legislation to create the Corporation for National and Community Service, commonly called AmeriCorps, of which he was the first chief executive.
The primary components of the program are Citizen Service Fellowships, the Segal Fellows Network, and a Memorial Lecture that focuses on civic leadership and national service.
Internship organizations have included the Office of Mayor Thomas Menino, Albright Stonebridge Group, City Year, Inc., the Urban Institute, ThinkEco Inc., the National Employment Law Project and Next Street Financial. Brandeis undergraduates and first year MPP students looking for summer internship opportunities are especially encouraged to attend. Contact Tam Emerson for more information.
Lunch will be provided.
