2020 Summer College Internship Program at DOROT
DOROT offers a 10 or 11-week summer internship program for college students interested in careers in non-profit management, community organizing, social work and working with older adults. Through a competitive process, we choose ten to twelve interns each summer. Only current Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors will be considered for our summer college internship positions.
The internship program provides students with an understanding of the issue and impact of social isolation among older adults as well as DOROT’s response. We give each intern substantive work and project management experience. While the work done by interns varies by department, we are committed to entrusting interns with significant responsibility and providing them with an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution.
In addition to a departmental placement, summer interns also have a group experience. There is a comprehensive orientation to DOROT and our work with older adults, weekly group sessions with other interns and DOROT staff for learning and reflection and several group outings each summer.
