This paper discusses the characteristics, learning objectives, challenges, and outcomes of a donor-funded internship program for undergraduate students interested in reproductive rights, health, and justice at Tulane University’s Newcomb Institute. I argue that this model, while it has unique challenges, is well-suited to meet the objectives typically established for service-learning programs, including the development of authentic, mutually beneficial, sustainable relationships between community partners and the university (James and Logan 17) and the cultivation of students’ senses of self-efficacy and interest in community engagement (Knapp et al.).
