Interested in interning with us?

Washtenaw Area Council for Children offers unpaid, but highly flexible, internships in the majority of our programs. We would love to have you on our team!


Step 1:

make sure you're eligible

In order for you to get school credit for interning with us, Washtenaw Area Council for Children needs to have an articulation agreement with your school. Right now, the only school we have an articulation agreement with is the University of Michigan. We primarily have graduate interns.

  • If you are a graduate student from the U of M, talk to your department's internship director to see if we have an agreement with your program.
  • If you are interested in interning with us but you are from a different school/an undergraduate, we will need to establish an articulation agreement through your internship director before you can receive school credit for working with us.
  • If you are interested in working with us without receiving school credit, visit our volunteer page.

Step #2:

learn about our programs

Our internships are individually designed around the strengths and interests of our interns; however, because we have internships in all of our programs, you should research our programs so you can tell us what program(s) you would be most interested in interning with.

  • If you're interested in a general internship with us and have questions, contact our executive director Jyoti at jyoti@washtenawchildren.org.

  • If you're interested in interning with our Safe Baby program and have questions, contact Althea at althea@washtenawchildren.org.

  • If you're interested in interning with our Body Safety Training program and have questions, contact Marcia at marcia@washtenawchildren.org.

  • If you're interested in interning with our Cyber Safety program and have questions, contact Robin at robin@washtenawchildren.org.

  • If you are interested in interning with our program Resilience in a Digital Age and have questions, contact Hannah at hannah@washtenawchildren.org.


Step #3:

Apply

To apply, please email your resume and cover letter to both Jyoti (jyoti@washtenawchildren.org) and the contact for whichever program you're interested in interning with, listed above. We will respond to you shortly to discuss available internships, and, if any are available, schedule an interview.

*Please note that, if selected, we will need to perform a routine background check since you will be working with children.
