Make a Difference for Children

Save the Children supports a year round internship program centered around the academic calendar. It offers a variety of unpaid semester internship positions that provide a unique opportunity for experience and expansion of knowledge in the non-profit world. Interns have the chance to work under the direct supervision of an experienced Save the Children staff member to help guide their development of skills within their chosen field. Their work focuses on the advancement of important strategic projects.

Internship positions are available in our Fairfield, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., and Kentucky offices. Interns work a minimum of 16 hours per week and a maximum of 40 hours a week.
