Belmont psychology major Justin Lang was recently accepted into the Washington Program of the Institute for Responsible Citizenship, a premiere organization for some of the nation’s top African American male college students.
The program runs through June and July and is a two-summer commitment. During the first summer, students focus on classes, internships, meetings with inspirational leader, and bonding with the other young men in their cohort. Professional development, character development, mentorship and graduate school preparation are priorities for the second summer, although students work full-time at internships.
Joining other undergraduates from universities such as Harvard, Yale, New York University and others, Justin will participate in a full-time internship over two consecutive summers. This summer he will be interning with the Children’s Defense Fund.
