Internships

Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence offers course credit internships during the Fall and Spring semesters and during the summer. We welcome undergraduate and graduate students interested in public policy, communications, advocacy, and research related to sexual violence.

An internship with The Alliance will provide a meaningful experience working with professional staff at one of the state’s leading non-profit organizations. Interns will work with staff to create a semester work plan with a focus in one of the following three areas: Public Policy and Research, Outreach and Advocacy, or Publications and Graphics.

Interns should have a willingness to learn, take initiative and be an active participant in community efforts. If you would like to intern with The Alliance, send us your resume with a cover letter discussing your interest, goals, and related experience. Please also provide any information pertaining to your college’s requirements for internships.

No phone calls, please. Emails should be sent to internship@endsexualviolencect.org. Applicants should familiarize themselves with our organization before reaching out.

Public Policy & Research

These interns assist in the development and implementation of legislative or policy agenda by researching pertinent issues and documenting the findings in fact sheets and reports. They also draft and submit testimony for public hearings at the State Capitol and build grassroots support for priority legislation.

Outreach & Advocacy

These interns help our coalition be visible in the community through tabling at events and outreach to statewide and regional organizations. They also help with the coordination of special projects with allied groups and coalitions. They must possess strong communication skills, and a willingness to speak with others about what they can do to get involved in efforts to support survivors and end sexual violence.

Publications & Graphics

These interns assist in the development of educational materials for professionals and the general public through presentations, brochures, booklets, and more. They must have experience with creative software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Portfolio samples are required upon application.
