Volunteer or Intern

Internships are for student course credit or non-student professional experience in NBLCA affiliate offices. We do not provide paid internships. An intern at NBLCA is typically someone who is enrolled in a graduate program that requires work experience in an area of interest and gains course credit for this experience.  (Public Health, Health Education, Public Administration, Science, Non-Profit Management, etc)
