Summer & Academic Year Internships for Undergraduate Students

button  Watch Our Video

Spend a semester or a summer learning about DOROT and serving the frail elderly in the community. As a DOROT intern, you will be exposed to the complex issues of aging, and gain experience in all aspects of DOROT’s operations. Among many activities you may: visit with seniors in their homes, escort seniors to the doctor, assist seniors in computer use, escort seniors to cultural events, and assist in the DOROT office.

DOROT internships, which put you at the forefront of our operations, are particularly rewarding learning experiences. We will assist you in designing an individualized internship schedule with customized projects to match your interests, meet your professional goals, or fulfill requirements for class credit.

“I have learned a tremendous amount about aging, improved my communication skills, and gained an appreciation for the elderly” — Rachel, Gerontology Major @ Muhlenberg College

“DOROT gave me a multi faceted experience. I got to meet people and learn about their lives, experiences, and stories. My other friends volunteer in hospitals and gaining personal insight into the lives of those being cared for was not fundamental to their experience as it was mine.” — Alona, Pre–Med student @ Hunter College
