KIPPterns Program


The KIPPtern program expands access to coveted political internships that are often out of reach for economically disadvantaged students because they are almost always unpaid.

Through the KIPPtern program, KIPP MA provides students with a stipend, as well as an allowance for transportation, clothing, and food. In 2019, four students interned with state and local officials in Lynn and Boston. In 2020, we had 6 KIPPterns participate in remote internships with The Blue Lab, City Councilor Michelle Wu, and Union Capital Boston. Please help expand access to opportunity and give our students a seat at the table and the experiences they deserve as they build their careers. Check out the reflections of our 2020 KIPPterns below:
