General Internship Information

Internships at UWGLV are available in most of our business areas year-round.  We are highly flexible with start and end dates for internships.

·         Open to individuals of any age over 14, in a formal educational program or not, who demonstrate they are developing new professional skills and would benefit from the opportunity to work and learn in our organization.

·         Will work on projects that go beyond that which the organization expected to accomplish with regular employees and which are not core to the achievement of the organization’s mission.

·         An intern is expected to get as much from the work experience at UWGLV as UWGLV gets from the intern.  The supervisor of an intern anticipates a “break-even” exchange of time invested in mentoring the intern versus work product contributed to the organization.

·       May serve as an intern for no more than 1 year or no more than 950 hours.
