Internship opportunities provide undergraduate and graduate students with high-quality experiential learning opportunities at an LGBT non-profit organization. Internships are open only to students enrolled or completing educational programs at accredited higher educational institutions. In order to provide a high-quality learning experience for our interns, our internship program requires that students intern for a minimum of 8 hours per week during the spring or fall semesters (12 week minimum) and 16 hours per week during the summer semester (9 weeks minimum). Interns at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center conclude their internships after learning transferable skills that are relevant for employment in many non-profit organizations.
