Internship Program

826michigan interns are an integral part of the work we do. To that end, interns are given an array of tasks ranging from administrative to programatic to event planning and beyond.

We offer a variety of internships, and cater each one to an intern’s specific goals and interests. Internships range from one semester to one year, and typically involve twelve hours a week. All internships are unpaid. To see a complete list of internships, check out our offerings here.

We accept applications year-round, at any time. Generally, our Internship Program runs on the following calendar, although it depends upon the internship:

Fall Semester: September 1 to December 20 (Applications due by July 15).
Winter/Spring Semester: Jan 4 to June 9 (Applications due by November 1).
Summer Semester: May 1 to August 20 (Applications due by March 15).

Fall interns have the possibility to renew their internships for the Winter/Spring semester.
