We have filled our two available internship posts for spring 2015. PACES is happy to answer questions from prospective fall intern applicants. The deadline to apply for a fall 2015 internship is July 10, 2015. We are looking for college students who care about local education and want to receive an educational opportunity focusing on the formation, early-stage planning, and implementation of non-profit organizations. As an educational organization, we extend our mission and vision to the internship experience. We are committed to ensure that the internships are valuable, educational, and worthwhile experiences to the interns as they work to begin their future careers. View the internship description and application.



As our programs grow, we will need volunteers for tutoring, field trip implementation, and other events. Pennsylvania clearances may be required (Act 24, Act 34, and Act 151). Please contact us  if you are interested.
