As a volunteer or student intern, you’ll work for a creative nonprofit that’s just getting started. This will give you exposure to a little bit of everything including public policy research and advocacy, non-profit management, fundraising, social media and communications.

Volunteer activities are individually crafted to reflect the interests of the volunteer.  Please get to know us through our website so that you’ll know what initiatives match your commitments and educational needs.

If you are a student, we will work closely with you to ensure that you receive academic credit for internships whenever possible. Internships are unpaid.
