The Stanford University Libraries have partnered with Eastside College Preparatory School to provide paid summer internships to local aspiring 1st-generation college students. The goal of our program is to provide the interns with paid job experience while exposing them to key aspects of college life, especially the role of libraries in student success. Our vision is to create successful students who love libraries!
Seven lucky students from Eastside College Preparatory School in East Palo Alto have earned a gig at the Stanford Libraries for a summer internship. The interns have been placed in different libraries from Green to Meyer, to Music and Biology. I am Veronica Rubalcava and I am the co-coordinator for the internship program. When I heard about the internship program, I was pleased to know that an opportunity for first-generation college students was being offered.
