DOROT offers semester or year-long internships for college students interested in careers in non-profit management, community organizing, social work and working with older adults.
This internship provides students with an understanding of the issue and impact of social isolation among older adults as well as DOROT’s response. Each intern receives substantive work and project management experience. While the work done by interns varies by department we are committed to entrusting interns with significant responsibility and providing them with an opportunity to contribute to their department in a real and impactful way. All interns will be assigned a DOROT senior for a weekly friendly phone call or in-person visit, pending organization guidelines due to COVID-19.
There are opportunities for interns to customize projects to match interests, meet professional goals, and/or fulfill requirements for class credits.
We ask for a commitment of 8-10 hours per week, excluding school vacation weeks. In some cases, accommodations can be made for interns with extreme time constraints. Please note: At the time of this posting, DOROT is operating in a remote work environment. For the academic term, it is possible that we will have returned to work either completely in-person or in a hybrid model. In the event we are working partially or completely in-person, some of the responsibilities detailed in the internship descriptions will take place either in the homes of seniors or onsite at DOROT. Additional information about these changes will be provided with as much advance notice as possible.
Internship positions will be offered and are accepted on a rolling basis. As such, availability of all posted positions are subject to change.
