The Sankofa Center offers several different focuses for our internship programs, reflecting the needs and opportunities of the communities we serve:
“The experience of my college-student daughter last summer was the one-of-a-kind experience a parent hopes her child will find as she becomes a truly educated person. Thank you for your truly wonderful work.”
- Kay Plantes, Principal
“…the program is truly what you make of it and teaching young people about HIV, performing, and learning so much about the culture was a really amazing experience for us.”
- Katie Barron & Emmerson Williams, American University Alumnae, Washington DC
We also provide a Certificate of Completion to all successful volunteers. A majority of our volunteers are interested in advancing their professional and academic careers through entry into various graduate, medical, and professional schools. In today’s competitive society one’s future success often depends on the level of participation one has in terms of relating relevant principles and theories to practice in the real world.
The Certificate of Completion we grant has proven to be an essential tool for interns enhancing their academic and professional profiles and competitiveness. The certificate duly satisfies proof of internship requirements mandated by colleges and universities.
