Be a Smith Summer Partner


Again this summer we will be matching Smith alumnae with Smith students who will be interning in the New York City area. Last year's program was limited to Smith students who were participating in Praxis (a program giving Smith sophomores and juniors a one-time stipend for an unpaid internship that draws on their academic background and career goals), but this year's program will be open to all Smith students working in New York City this summer who would like to have an alumna partner.

As was true last year, our goal is to secure a broad spectrum of alumnae volunteers, including both class years and career backgrounds.

Should you be interested in participating, you would agree to meet in person with your Smith student two times this summer, once near the beginning of her internship and once near the end. While you are encouraged to meet more often, if your schedules permit, two meetings are required. In addition, you will be invited to the kick-off gathering the evening of June 3 and the closing meeting of the group of interns and partners in August. The time commitment is entirely manageable and, in the past, has been rewarding for alumnae partners.

We will make an effort to match each Smith student with an alumna whose professional and personal activities have a substantive connection with the Smith student's internship.

If you are interested in participating (or have any questions), please email me the information below--and any questions--to

We look forward to having you join us in this program.
