ACE Internship

ACE 24 Interns 2016-17

ACE Internship

In 2008, the Alliance for Catholic Education piloted an exciting initiative open to all Notre Dame juniors: the ACE undergraduate internship. Our internship program, now in its 11th year, attracts students interested in becoming ACE teachers after graduation and eager to work for ACE during their senior years to advance its mission in service to under-resourced Catholic schools.

Drawing on the diverse gifts and experiences of selected participants, these paid internships (5-10 hours per week) will offer challenging work in close collaboration with the ACE team in a variety of areas:

  • Outreach efforts to local and national Catholic schools
  • Raising awareness of ACE’s mission at Notre Dame and at colleges and universities nationwide
  • Research and analysis
  • Marketing and public relations
  • Technology
  • Community building

Interns will work closely with the ACE team on meaningful projects. Therefore, we seek rising seniors who wish to serve as ACE teachers after graduation and commit to do so as the first step of their internships. Application for these internships will thus include early application to join ACE. To learn more about the current interns, read their profiles.

Applications will open in February 2019. If you're interested, please contact Michael Comuniello, , 574.631.6561.
