Internship Opportunities

PDCDC Internship Program

We are currently looking for hard-working, dynamic undergraduates or graduate students. Interns will work closely with our staff to learn the ins and outs of running a nonprofit and serving a unique community. Potential candidates must be self-starters with strong communication skills, an eagerness to learn, and the ability to receive constructive criticism. As representatives of the PDCDC, we expect our interns to take the work seriously, to arrive promptly, to present themselves professionally, and to ask questions.

We encourage candidates to apply for multiple internships if the descriptions interest them. The positions are flexible with room for change, so if you possess skills in multiple areas listed below we can adapt a position to fulfill your learning needs.

We currently have internships open for students interested in:

– Writing
– Marketing
– Digital Media
– Event Planning
– Nonprofit Operations

APPROXIMATE HOURS PER WEEK: 10 to 15 hours per week or as requested by Academic Advisor for credit.

At this time, all PDCDC internships are unpaid, but we encourage you to talk with your departmental advisor about receiving academic credit for your work.

If you have any questions, please contact John Valentine (email and phone number listed below).

If you’re interested in applying for an internship, please submit a resume and cover letter (for all positions) as well as 3 writing samples (if applying for a writing position) or graphic design and marketing samples (if applying for a marketing or digital media position).
