Our professional development trainings are made possible by the generous support of U.S. Bank



Internships can be both rewarding and challenging for students and organizations. On one hand, internships can bring new energy and a fresh perspective to nonprofit organizations. They begin with so much promise and hope, both for the organization and intern. On the other hand, internships can add another layer of work to an already busy schedule. This session will discuss how nonprofits can develop and strengthen their internship programs.

We will discuss the following topics and more:

  • the qualities of an effective internship
  • finding qualified applicants
  • setting internship structure and logistics
  • managing interns

Attendees will learn about how their organization can offer internships that are meaningful and help your nonprofit accomplish your mission, vision, and goals. This session will also be informative, providing interactive activities and lively discussion.
