College Intern Volunteer Program

An intern is a non-paid Department member. Intern's receive college credit for their work during their internship in the program. Interns are required by their respective internship administrators to volunteer anywhere from 120 to 300 hours of service, or complete a specified project.

Interns are afforded the opportunity to work interesting assignments and they are encouraged to utilize their talents and to develop new skills. The department benefits by this exceptional talent from within the college community and it serves to enhance the delivery of services and special programs.

There are intern opportunities for all levels of college students.
