The American Red of North Central Florida’s Internship Program provides college undergraduates with meaningful opportunitie s to help their community while giving them guidance from experts in their field of professional study. The American Red Cross of North Central Florida interns also enjoy “real world” experience: stimulating and challenging professional projects, assignments and activities that enhance their educational experience and skills. These can include developing training programs, working with donors, coordinating disaster response and recruiting volunteers. In return, the Chapter receives the benefit of a dedicated, enthusiastic addition to its staff.
Interns work in departments throughout the Chapter—from Marketing to Disaster Planning & Response to Health and Safety Services. They are also encouraged to take advantage of the numerous Red Cross disaster courses available to all volunteers, which help them become well-versed in the North Central Florida Chapter’s work and mission.
Interns must be currently affiliated with an accredited academic institution or commencing study in the coming semester.
