About WaterStep's Internship Program

WaterStep's internship program is designed to supplement the needs of our organization while offering experiences and opportunities that will benefit the intern in their career path and goals. During the internship we evaluate the skills and talents of the intern while mentoring them in real life business and service applications. We often use this program to assess the potential of an individual for a future employment opportunity. Interns are required to participate in water training classes so as to fully engulf themselves in the mission of WaterStep. Opportunities to gain internship experience are available through WaterStep. All internships are unpaid. However, WaterStep, at its discretion, may award a stipend.  

Read about past WaterStep interns Katie Jaggers, named a "Twenty-something to Watch" by LEO Magazine, and Natalie Hymer, awarded the 2012 Young Philanthropist of the year award.  

All internship positions are considered voluntary and are for a short duration (3 months or less). Interns are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours and a maximum of 40 hours week, be dependable, punctual and presentable to our constituents. Interns are responsible for providing their own room and board and personal transportation. Interns must be able to satisfy the identification requirements of the I-9 to show their ability to work in the United States.
