Prevention Partners Internships
We have a couple part-time or full-time internships open to undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates. Part-time interns are expected to work a minimum of 10 hours/week over a 12-week internship session to support our extensive and engaging projects. Full-time interns are expected to devote a minimum of 400 hours during the spring semester.
