Currently, we offer internships in the following departments:

Are you seeking the chance to learn how a non-profit works behind the scenes? Development Interns assist our fundraising team with prospect research, volunteer outreach and management, data entry, and other light administrative tasks. This is a great way to discover the ins and outs of non-profit management!

The Housing Outreach Intern assists the Landlord Liaison with tasks related to researching housing availability and eligibility and marketing Transition Projects’ programs to landlords and property managers throughout the metro area. The Housing Outreach Intern will learn about housing and rent assistance programs, barriers to housing faced by people experiencing homelessness, and how programs like Transition Projects help people to overcome these barriers.

Human Resources Interns assist with recruitment and onboarding, employee recognition and retention, coordinating staff events, assisting with staff training and development initiatives, updating policies, and file maintenance for a large, dynamic non-profit with over 280 staff. This is an opportunity to learn HR best practices, critical aspects of employment law and compliance, and the interrelationship of HR and our programs.
