Intern Opportunities

Welcome to the Interfaith Alliance Intern Program

Throughout the year, students from around the country intern at  Interfaith Alliance. Interning at  Interfaith Alliance gives them the unique opportunity to explore the various faith traditions represented in our diverse nation and to see first-hand the religious liberty at work. In addition, interns also work in a specific department, including development, program, or policy to learn about the specific rewards and challenges inherent in non-profit work. As full members of  Interfaith Alliance staff, interns are expected to contribute to the daily tasks and ongoing projects.  The internships are unpaid.

 

Interfaith Alliance offers key intern position areas in:

  • Public Policy
