Hannah Read, resident of Auburn, is spending the summer interning for Women’s Resource Center of Newport and Bristol Counties in Newport, R.I., working in the nonprofit field.

Read interns through Connecticut College’s Career Enhancing Life Skills (CELS) program, which guides students during their four-year academic experience from initial academic advising and personal development to securing a funded internship after their junior year and senior year job search assistance.

The intent of the funded internship is to have a transforming impact upon the students’ intellectual, professional and personal development through exposure to work, research or community involvement that he or she may not otherwise encounter through coursework.
