Spring and Fall College Internship

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 Academic 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 connects with older adults onsite at DOROT or through home visits. We entrust interns with significant responsibility and provide them with an opportunity to meaningfully contribute to their assigned department.

DOROT is seeking college interns to work in-person or on a hybrid model, with the possibility of one internship position that will operate completely remotely. In addition to interning onsite at DOROT, hybrid and in-person interns will go on home visits to older adults in the community. Each intern will be assigned to at least one older adult for some type of weekly engagement.
