Active Minds internships are geared towards current college students and recent college graduates. As a small nonprofit, Active Minds relies on the help of our interns tremendously as they work directly on important initiatives and projects as well as assist staff on a variety of administrative tasks. Interns have the opportunity to do substantive work, gain experience in the nonprofit sector, and help change the culture around mental health.
All Spring 2022 internships will be remote with an anticipated start date of January 18, 2022 and end date of April 29, 2022. We expect interns to work a minimum of 20 hours a week, be available to work between 9:00am and 6:00pm EST, and commit to staying on board for the entire semester.
Active Minds pays interns a stipend of $1,250 per month.
