CCL Training: Engaging Students Through Internships

July 4, 2020

Join CCL's Student Engagement Coordinator Clara Fang for a training that walks through the process of setting up a local internship and what to consider. If you are a CCL group leader, state coordinator, or regional coordinator, working with an intern is a great way to get more done and engage young people with CCL. Supervising an intern is a significant time commitment and this training walks interested groups through deciding whether they need an intern, creating the intern position description, and the best practices in being a host.

Dr. Carolyn Woo spearheaded a dialogue at the Pontifical Academy of the Sciences on “The Energy Transition and Care for Our Common Home.” At the conclusion of the event, leaders from the energy sector and the global investment community released a statement saying, "The combination of policies and carbon pricing mechanisms should be designed in a way that simultaneously delivers innovation and investment in low carbon solutions while assisting those who are least able to pay."

Woo, currently a Distinguished President’s Fellow for Global Development at Purdue University, served as President and CEO of Catholic Relief Services from 2012 to 2016. She was featured in the May/June 2013 issue of Foreign Policy as one of the 500 Most Powerful people on the planet and one of only 33 in the category of “a force for good.”
