Is a Nonprofit Internship the Best Choice for You?

August 3, 2021 - August 4, 2021


I knew if I accepted an internship, I wanted responsibilities that challenged my worldview. I wanted to network with people who shared the same values as me. I wanted to contribute to a greater purpose. That’s how I knew a nonprofit internship was right for me.

But is a nonprofit internship right for you?

Like me, you may not know if you even want to do an internship, let alone in the nonprofit sector. So, I’ve compiled a few questions that can help you decide if a nonprofit internship is the best choice for you.

1. Do you want to be able to advocate for your interests and passions?

Not every organization’s mission will align with your interests. That’s OK. The intersection of career and calling isn’t easy to navigate.

Internships, however, offer you the perfect chance to discover the role your passions can play in your future.

I knew I wanted to advocate for children living in poverty through my work, so I made it a priority in my internship search.

Spending my summer here at Compassion, I’ve learned an internship that connects my passions makes work more than a list of responsibilities. I’m tackling assignments that focus on child advocacy and poverty alleviation. Things that I care about.

Does your dream job include fetching coffee and making copies? Or do you want to engage in work that you’re emotionally invested in and passionate about? If you want to back causes you care about during your internship, a nonprofit internship might be the right option for you.
