Five Muhlenberg students have been selected to participate in the Air Products Community Internship Program. This partnership, a collaboration between Air Products and the College’s Career Center and Office of Community Engagement, is designed to benefit non-profit organizations in the Lehigh Valley and provide valuable internship experiences for Muhlenberg College students. In addition to work experience, each student will receive a stipend of $2,600 and possible academic credit for their 35 hour/week commitment.

The summer cohort includes:

Nicole Roth '16, Neighborhood Health Centers of the Lehigh Valley

Felisa Wiley '16, Friends of the Allentown Parks

Alison Smith '17, Community Action Development Corporation of Allentown

Jessica Sperber '17, Community Bike Works

Jalal Khan '18, Lehigh Valley Sustainability Network

Through their participation in the internship program, these students will engage in the community, gain experience in their intended career fields, learn more about the world of non-profit organizations and serve a non-profit that could not have afforded to pay an intern without stipend donation.
