Internships are unpaid. Interns gain hands-on knowledge and experience, receive training to support volunteer activities, and are assigned special projects that relate to their educational or personal goals. We will also help those interested to apply for school credit.
To apply, submit resume and brief letter of interest outlining your qualifications to firstname.lastname@example.org with the internship title in the subject line. Internships are typically filled seasonally, but applications are accepted year-round.
