CHDFS, Inc's internship program offers college or graduate students the opportunity to learn a diverse range of skills in communication, administrative, and programming roles expected for work in the non-profit industry. Our interns work both independently and with staff, on projects geared towards the development of our mission. CHDFS enables interns have had the opportunity to shape aspects of their projects which are developed prior to, or at the start of the program. Eagerness to learn, good organization skills, and strong interpersonal skills are essential traits in all our interns. We value all students with all different types of experience, but do have certain criteria for our more intensive projects.
