SHECP By The Numbers
Colleges and Universities
SHECP is a collaboration between more than two-dozen colleges and universities that integrates rigorous classroom study of poverty with tailored and focused summer internships and co-curricular activities.
Hours of Service
During the SHECP 2021 Summer Program, interns provided approximately 31,000 hours of service. Our interns often serve as a force multiplier for our nonprofit partners. These agencies often serve hundreds on razor-thin budgets and the tension between limited resources and need makes their work difficult.
Students Placed in Internships
In 2021, SHECP provided 155 students with summer internships.
In 2021, SHECP partnered with 111 poverty-focused nonprofit and government agencies across the U.S. These agencies work on the front lines of poverty and serve as co-educators to our students.
