- gain professional experience and exposure to the non-profit sector
- receive networking, personal, and professional development opportunities, and;
- receive academic credit if applicable.
Our volunteer internship program is in accordance with all applicable employment laws including the Fair Labor Standards Act. While our program is unpaid, we offer College or University credit. Preference is given to those with an academic requirement for an internship however, all students are encouraged to apply.
In addition, we partner with college and university programs seeking placements for students in nonprofits for service corps, experiential learning, or similar programs.
