Resurgent India, an NGO, has announced plans to offer internships dealing with civic issues to college students during the upcoming holidays.
The NGO, which is headed by Professor M V Rajeev Gowda, announced it aims to involve the youth to deal with civic issues in the city.
The NGO describes the internship as being a platform for students to understand and analyse civic issues in the city. Referring to garbage problems, Gowda said, “Instead of pointing fingers, we can solve this big problem if we hold hands.”
Commencing on October 19, the month-long internship will have two phases. The first two weeks would be action-oriented with students providing voluntary social service. Those who are interested in research on civic issues can continue on for the next two weeks. Activities planned for students include field observation, surveys, opinion polls, liasing with officials and research along with in-house debates and discussions.
Any college student who is above 17 years of age and is interested in dealing with civic issues can apply for this internship. Resurgent India functionaries add that anyone who can dedicate time to civic issues can also apply at the NGO’s office on Church Street or fill up an online application form at www.resurgentindia.info.
