We’re looking for interns to join us in the APSCUF office this summer — and these opportunities aren’t just for students. APSCUF offers a summer internship for a State System student as well as learning opportunities for faculty and coach members. We’re accepting applications for both internships now.

Faculty/coaches internship

APSCUF’s faculty and coaches orientation internship is for APSCUF members who have some local APSCUF responsibility and are interested in expanding a working knowledge of the union. Interns spend a week in the summer in the Harrisburg office to observe the entire spectrum of union administration. They interact with staff members who serve in various capacities. The program aims to prepare APSCUF members for increased local and/or state responsibilities.
