Internship Program

VimeoInstagram

 
Our internship program is open to high school, undergraduate and graduate students looking to broaden their experiences and learn from working at a non-profit organization. We accept internship applications for both our CT and NJ offices. High school applicants come with a range of interests, and college students may be from any major or discipline. VOICES internships have prepared dozens of students for careers in public service, social work, communications, event planning, business, and information technology.
 
Applicants must have relevant experience, be self-motivated, have the ability to work independently as well as a part of a team, and must be able to commit to a regular schedule.
 
 

 
VOICES High School Internship Program
 
High school students can volunteer after school, in special programs during the spring semester of senior year, or during the summer. During summer vacation, the VOICES New Canaan office offers a program for highly motivated rising high school seniors. The students research a 9/11 topic of their choice, film interviews and then edit a short film. The film is part of a presentation that is shown to local high school students and community members. Videos from past years are available to view on our website.
