The Northfield Bank Foundation has generously supported College of Staten Island student internships at local non-profit organizations for the past several years.

For 2014-2015, the Foundation has increased their support to $40,000 due to the success of the internship program in the way it has impacted the community and the lives of CSI students.

With this new level of support, the program can continue to grow and reach more nonprofit organizations on Staten Island in the years to come. The hands-on experience of the internship enables CSI students to add the position to their resume to enhance their career opportunities after graduation.

The CSI Career and Scholarship Center selects students during an application and interview process, which ensures that the nonprofit groups receive qualified students with a serious commitment to serve their community.

Executive Director of Northfield Bank Foundation, Diane Senerchia and Board Members Lucille Chazanoff and Susan Lamberti, were honored with a reception .
