An internship with the League of Women Voters of Radnor Township is an opportunity for high school and college students to pursue an interest or passion related to improving the Radnor community, to educating the public on selected governmental issues, and/or to promoting political responsibility or active participation in civic affairs. Projects, be their individual or team efforts, are developed through collaboration between those seeking internships and League leadership. Individualized guidance and flexible scheduling are provided throughout the internship period, using during the summer months. On conclusion, final projects are shared with peers, league members, and the general public in a variety of venues – from local government meetings to programs on public access television.
Although internships are rarely compensated financially, each intern receives a free membership in the LWV of Radnor Township and a personal recommendation for use in college applications or future job opportunities. When available and appropriate, students may participate through the Radnor High School Internship Program sponsored by the Radnor Educational Foundation.
For more information or to apply for an internship, contact President Emeritus Roberta Winters.
