Much of what happens in Clarkston is pushing the boundary lines of what anyone has yet documented in several spheres of study and practice. If your professional growth and/or research goals align with the efforts of Friends of Refugees, we can work with you to explore an internship experience that will help you accomplish your learning or research goals while growing the thought-leadership that several of our programs are offering in their professional fields.

Many of our programs have existing structured semester internships: 

  • Youth Programs Summer Camp (Summer 2018)
  • Refugee Career Hub (Spring and Fall 2018)
  • Volunteer Management (Spring 2018)
  • Embrace Birth Support (Any semester)
  • Jolly Avenue Community Garden (Spring and Summer 2018)

As a growing non-profit with an innovative leadership team and eight creative programs, there is an opportunity for you no matter your field of study. We are able to customize internships to meet specific educational or research needs. Environmental studies? Help us develop a sustainability plan for our new building. Accounting? Work with our bookkeeper and development coordinator on donor experience and development. Marketing? Get the word out about what is happening in this community! Need a place to conduct your research? Want to work with youth, families, education, ESL? Let’s discuss the possibilities.

If you are interested in pursuing an internship with Friends of Refugees, fill out the Internship Interest Form and we will contact you soon.
