Blanchet House offers three-month internships throughout the year. The internship program provides students and others with a hands-on experience. We show you how a nonprofit is run, the daily tasks that go into managing a nonprofit, and have you help out with necessary organizational and administrative tasks, social media, fundraising campaigns while taking their future interests into consideration and providing each student with a personal mentor and guide throughout the duration of their internship. The internships are unpaid and require a time commitment of 5 to 8 hours a week. We offer school credit. It’s our goal to provide smart, curious people experience in the fundamentals of running a social service nonprofit agency in Portland. Strong communication skills and ability to take direction are a must.
We have five categories of internships. When applying please note which internship you are most interested in and qualified for.
