Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our internships are currently on hold. We hope to open for Fall 2021 internships; call our office to learn more about these opportunities.

Internships not only build resumes for college graduates, but also provide job training aimed at showcasing marketable skills. By interning at Habitat, interns gain valuable real-world experience with the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives, join in socializing activities, increase professional portfolio capacity, and foster personal growth.
