Undergraduate interns play a significant role at MEDA, working to further the mission of our organization. To do this, interns work with all staff on a plethora of projects that leverage each individual’s strengths. Interns also assist with minor administrative tasks. At MEDA, we encourage our undergraduate interns to explore topic(s) in the field of particular interest to them. As such, every intern works on an individual project over the course of their time at MEDA.
There are two types of undergraduate internships at MEDA:
1. Programming Intern
As a Programming Intern, tasks focus on supporting MEDA’s functional areas of Educate and Empower. Working with the Organizational Development Coordinator, the Programming Intern will gain knowledge and valuable skills relating to the ED field, counseling, and human services in a nonprofit setting. The ideal candidates are those who are pursuing a degree in Social Work, Mental Health Counseling, Psychology, or a related field.
2. Development / Communications Intern
As an Intern working with the Director of Philanthropy, the tasks will focus on supporting MEDA’s development activities including communications, marketing, website, social media, event planning, grant writing and other tasks related to funding initiatives. Ideal candidates are those who are pursuing a degree in nonprofit management, communications, business administration, marketing, or a related field. The tasks and responsibilities for this internship are flexible and can be tailored to meet the educational goals / strengths of the intern and MEDA's needs.
1. Undergraduate interns do not have direct contact with MEDA’s clients and will not serve in clinical roles.
2. All of our undergraduate internships are unpaid, but provide the opportunity for valuable training.
