The purpose of the Samaritan Internship is to support the career path of one college student each year who has demonstrated an interest in a career with nonprofit organizations. This is a paid, 9-week summer internship, approximately 30 hours per week, beginning in June annually, with the start date dependent upon the intern’s college schedule.  The student will work most of his/her hours with the Suffolk Foundation but may also have opportunities to work with other local nonprofits of interest.
