Finding Student Interns and Volunteers
The Greater Richmond Metro region is the home of many prominent universities and community colleges, which enroll thousands of students each year. These students are talented, eager and willing to serve our community, particularly through internship opportunities.
We at Southside Community Partners hope to connect our member organizations to the universities and students.
Please note: we are in the process of adding information for the local schools mentioned below and appreicate any community partnering in this effort - please email us.
Connect with Universities
Most schools and departments within the universities have their own way of reaching students through newsletters, listserves and staff who direct internship opportunities to students. We suggest you also contact the schools directly.
If you're not sure where to start or have questions, you may contact our office at (804) 458-6329 ext 2013 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd be happy to point you in the right direction.
Creating and developing an effective internship program takes time and resources but can also be a profoundly rewarding and mutually beneficial experience - both for the student and the organization. Access resources on how to Prepare for an Intern.
