Development Internship

Our student interns are an important part of our success.  We have been fortunate to have enjoyed some great interns over the years --- some of whom we hired as employees!

An internship at the Child Advocacy Center provides a unique opportunity to gain an increased understanding of non-profit management, marketing and fundraising. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about the child welfare and criminal justice systems, and the dynamics of child abuse and neglect.

Development Interns at the Child Advocacy Center must be actively pursuing a degree in hospitality, marketing, business or a related field. Interns must be willing and able to complete the amount of hours required by their university – or at least 100 hours within 3 months (virtual internships are not available). Interns must be seeking internship credit at their college or university and have an advisor/instructor for accountability purposes. Experience working with social media and/or events is preferred.

At the Child Advocacy Center, it is our goal to provide the Development Intern with a wide variety of knowledge in the field of non-profit management and fundraising. Some areas of focus will be:

  • Assist the Special Events & Volunteer Coordinator with the production and distribution of social media posts.  
  • Assist the Special Events & Volunteer Coordinator with the planning of our two fall events: Harvest of Hope and Monster Dash. 
  • Assist the Development Director in tracking donations, analyzing donor data and trends, as well as help with the acknowledgement and recognition of donors according to the Stewardship Plan.  
  • Assist the Grant Manager with the management of active grants, as well as with the search for prospective new grant opportunities.  

If you are interested in being considered for a non-paid internship at the Child Advocacy Center, please complete the intern application below at least 4 weeks prior to the desired start date. Once your application has been reviewed you will be contacted for an interview. Background checks will be conducted on all prospective interns.
