The Center welcomes interns throughout the year. Interns generally support Center projects assisting with research, writing and analysis, communications, meetings and events. Efforts are made to match interns' interests and skills with appropriate projects and tasks.
Internships are generally unpaid; there are exceptions when grant funds are available. Interns are usually students on work study, students using a public interest stipend through their schools, or student volunteers.
During the school year, interns work about 15 hours per week for at least 3 months. During the summer, interns work either full or part-time for at least 2 months.
Internships are open to law students, graduate (e.g., social work, psychology) and undergraduate students. Applicants must be interested in child welfare and the law.
