Internship Program - Spring and Summer 2011

The Sikh Coalition Internship Program allows students pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies to gain hands-on experience in promoting the civil and human rights of all individuals.

Internships are available in the following program areas:

Advocacy - Community Outreach - Education
Legal - Video & Media - Operations & Development

Our interns are given real responsibility and have the opportunity to effect noticeable change in the Sikh community through involvement in the Coalition’s ground-breaking work.

"I am hopeful that my work this summer has, in some small way, been able to mimic the incredible dedication that characterized Dr. Bajwa’s life. I have been honored to work alongside our staff attorneys to educate both the government and private-sector employers as to the Civil Rights of Sikh men and woman who are being discriminated against."

"On Day 2 [of the Sikh Presenter's Course], I presented a section called 'Coordinating a Presentation' in which I outlined the steps that need to be taken in order to communicate with a school or workplace about giving a Sikh Awareness Presentation... Among the many things I was entrusted with, preparing for and delivering this section was one of the most useful." Read more here.

- Anoop Singh, Education Intern 2010

"There is a diligent, confident, and compassionate spirit that catalyzes all work done at the Coalition, and I am proud to have helped carry the torch for its extraordinarily executed and incredibly altruistic cause as a summer intern." Read more here.
