    About The Bold Internship Program

    The Vibe:

    Bold Summer is a place where diverse people explore who they are and their experience from a personal, community, and social justice perspective. We seek people who respect individual and collective culture and challenges and are curious without threatening others.

      What We Are Not:

      • We don't care if you've read all the right "woke" books
      • We don't care if you've never been to a rally
      • We don't care if you are POC, but never worked with POC
      • We will never invite someone who wants to play "devil's advocate" and doesn't care about folks lived experience
