NCUA Internship Intros Students To CU System
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (9/9/13)--Since its inception in June 2010, the National Credit Union Administration's Summer Intern Program has helped 47 college students experience the credit union difference first hand, and to learn about the credit union system by working from within.

The 2013 edition of the program is now complete, and this year's intern crop was the largest seen by the agency: 24 college students took on three-month internships.

The program, which draws interns from the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education, Washington Internships for Native Students, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, and the Conference on Asian Pacific American Leadership, has created four full-time NCUA employees and one full-time credit union employee.

The internship program is managed by the NCUA's Equal Opportunity Programs office. Office director S. Denise Hendricks said the program allows NCUA "to provide an opportunity to students who otherwise may not get one." The students "gain valuable experience that will help them succeed," she added.
