Throughout the year, Make-A-Wish New Jersey offers a variety of unpaid internships to provide opportunities for college students to receive academic credit and valuable work experience in the nonprofit field.
Our internship program aims to cultivate students from many fields and disciplines. We offer interns a substantive learning experience that affords them the opportunity to contribute to our work, and the knowledge, skills and tools they may need to continue in the nonprofit field.
Complementing their individual departmental placement, interns are collectively engaged in a comprehensive program that explores the Make-A-Wish mission through the agency’s structure as a whole and its role in a wish child’s life.
All of our internships are unpaid. Applicants in need of financial aid to support their internships are encouraged to explore potential funding sources through the career services or alumni offices on their campus. Many colleges offer their students scholarships, stipends, or off-campus work-study to facilitate participation in public-interest internships.
