Internship Opportunities

We’re Looking for People Who Have:

  • An interest in gaining hands-on experience in a non-profit organization
  • A positive attitude and willingness to learn new knowledge and skills
  • The ability to work collaboratively with our small team
  • Creative and innovative thinking (We love new ideas!)
  • The initiative to be given an assignment and make it happen
  • Excellent time management—you show up on time and meet deadlines
  • Availability to work at least 10 hours per week (we can work around your class schedule)
  • The ability to work in an open, shared office that is sometimes distracting or noisy
