Internship Opportunities

Internships are a great way for individuals to gain experience and help our organization. Our volunteer interns work for 20-40 hours per week to help in development, administration, communications, or with Race for the Cure. Our interns are involved in all areas of the organization and get hands-on experience in a non-profit setting. Many of our interns go on to be part  of other non-profits and some have even become Komen employees. We depend of our interns and cherish their contributions!
