Internships

Internship Program

There With Care offers semester long unpaid internships to a limited number of students interested in gaining practical work experience.  Interns learn about the many aspects of how a non-profit organization works, interacting directly with the staff, as well as veteran volunteers in various departments of the organization. With hands on training, you will contribute to the operation through helping with meaningful and necessary tasks, including direct and indirect service.

By learning about There With Care’s mission, values, and how we serve families affected by critical illness you will have a rewarding and beneficial experience while making a difference, expanding your skill set and developing critical relationships with other professionals.
