Interested in a career in non-profit management, community organizing, social work or working with older adults? DOROT is proud of its long and successful track record in inspiring students to pursue careers in the helping professions.
Through a semester- or year-long internship, students learn about social isolation, its major impact on older adults and how DOROT’s programs and services are specifically designed to address the issue. Each intern receives substantive work and project experience and gains opportunities to connect with older adults onsite or through home visits. DOROT entrusts interns with significant responsibility and provides them with an opportunity to meaningfully contribute to their assigned department. Interns are invited to customize projects to match their interests and professional goals, as they fulfill requirements for class credits as needed.
DOROT seeks college interns to fulfill various roles which may change from one semester to the next.
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the 2020 Fall Academic Internship will begin as a remote opportunity. If it is safe to do so, this position may be converted into an in-person opportunity. Please note: There is no guarantee that this position will be in-person at any point. Interns will have regular meetings with DOROT staff and their supervisors via Zoom. Additionally, each intern will be assigned an older adult for the duration of his or her internship for a weekly phone call.
