Our Interns Make A Difference
Interested in therapeutic recreation, recreation management, non-profit management, development or marketing? Intern with the National Ability Center! You will gain real-world skills while creating a real impact for individuals of all abilities.
As part of the The National Ability Center’s internship programs, college students and developing professionals just like you put information learned in the classroom to work to expand professional experience and knowledge. Here they acquire knowledge about their field of study and gain on-the-job experience working for a non-profit organization. Interns may be currently enrolled, recent graduates (within last four years) or experienced professionals looking to gain exposure to a new career or field. Intern positions range from part-time (as little as ten hours/week) up to full time positions for three to four months.
Some positions are weekday only, some may require weekend work. Scroll down for specific position descriptions and further information. Background checks are required.
