If you're in college or a recent graduate and are looking for an internship, Make-A-Wish Colorado can provide a valuable and rewarding experience.
About the Program
Interns for Make-A-Wish® Colorado give of their time and talents to help bring hope, strength, and joy to children who are battling life-threatening medical conditions. All of our internships are unpaid; however, in return for their hard work and dedication, our interns receive valuable training, knowledge, hands-on non-profit work experience, a chance to meet others, and the gratification of making a difference in the life of a child.
Academic credit can also be provided for students (specific criteria/requirements of the student's educational institution apply). Successful candidates are typically students or recent graduates (over the age of 18) with excellent written and oral communication skills, good organizational skills, the ability to multi-task, computer proficiency, and internet research ability.
Internship Application Calendar
We accept applications year-round, but spots fill up quickly so send your resume and cover letter as soon as possible. We do not have specific deadlines for applications, but below will give you an idea of when to apply based on when you would like to complete your internship. Applications for summer internships are now being accepted. Applications are due by March 31, 2017.
Types of Internships
We offer internships with our Wish Granting, Development & Communications and Kids for Wish Kids departments for each of the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters.
Interns generally work between 15-40 hours per week. While these time frames work best for most students, all scheduling, including start/end dates and hours per week, is flexible and negotiated between the candidate and his or her office during the interview stage of the selection process. To apply for an internship position, you must submit a resume and cover letter.
All hired interns must successfully complete a background check and attend an orientation session prior to beginning their internship.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Make-A-Wish Colorado intern and helping make wishes come true!
