Volunteer Internships

  • Young Professionals in Red Cross t-shirts
The American Red Cross of Western Pennsylvania offers numerous engaging internship opportunities throughout our 28-county region. The internship program provides students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience while working with the surrounding community and giving back to others. Through training, mentorship and routine interactions, interns will:
  • Gain professional experience and exposure to the non-profit sector
  • Work with and develop department specific projects/responsibilities to carry-out the Red Cross mission at the local level
  • Receive networking, personal and professional development opportunities
*Please note: All internships are unpaid, and they can be taken for credit or non-credit depending on the student’s needs. All internship applicants should currently be enrolled in a post-secondary education program.
