Create the Good
Don't forget that college interns can be volunteers too! Interns can be a great way to get extra free or low-cost support for your organization, and give a bright young mind a chance to earn some relevant work experience! Consider using an intern for help with IT, marketing, development, special events or administrative functions. We encourage all nonprofits to support their local institutions of higher education by mentoring our workforce's next generation!
