Steelworker Summer is an educational and training internship in which participants develop skills useful for union growth by experiencing firsthand the kinds of struggles workers face while trying to win a voice at work and in the community.  It is also designed to give participants an understanding and appreciation of the positive impact unions have had on the lives of working men and women.

Steelworker Summer is a program for young adults who want experience working for social justice firsthand.  Ideally, interns will remain active after Steelworker Summer by educating others about the value of the labour movement, possibly forming student/labour action coalitions, becoming union organizers, or contributing in some other way to the labour movement.

Internships are open to young adults, 17 years of age or older.  Preference for selection is given to children of members of the United Steelworkers.

Steelworker Summer is about uniting students, workers, and community activists to create social justice in workplaces and communities.
