Welcome to our 2021 Summer Interns!

June 1, 2021 — Warrenton, Va. — The PATH Foundation is happy to announce the hiring of 14 college students for the 2021 Summer Internship Program.

Over nine weeks, the interns will work together to strengthen the overall health and vitality of Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper counties.

Interns selected for the program are placed either within the PATH Foundation itself, or with area organizations and partners that align with the PATH Foundation’s mission.

This year’s intern placements include the Fauquier Free Clinic, Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health, Aging Together,  Remington Community Garden, PATH Foundation Communications team, the PATH Resource Center, Hero’s Bridge, Habitat for Humanity, the Mental Health Association of Fauquier County, Verdun Adventure Bound, Piedmont Resolution Center and The Land Trust of Virginia.

The PATH Foundation internship program allows college students to gain professional experience in a philanthropic environment and within their respective career interests and provides a unique opportunity for interns to directly serve their communities.

“The internship program at PATH is not only beneficial to the students that participate, but also the community as a whole. Students can apply their education and training directly to their work,” Maggie Afriyie, PATH program associate, said. “Our community, and PATH itself, also benefit from hearing fresh new ideas from the students. We’re honored to host their diverse talents and create a meaningful experience for both the interns and the organizations that host them.”

Each year, the PATH Summer Internship Program hires rising college juniors and seniors of all majors and interests. To learn more about the program, and this year’s intern class, please visit the PATH Foundation Intern web page.
