FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Do interns have to be college students?  
A: No, we look at the applications and determine if the applicant  qualifies.  However, we encourage intern applicants to be currently enrolled in a university, college, seminary, or technical school, or have been enrolled within the past year. We understand there are special cases when an applicant is accepted as an intern that is not currently enrolled in a university, college, seminary or technical school. All applicants under the age of eighteen must have written permission from their parents.

A: IMPACT WITH HOPE offers internships in the fall, spring, and summer, but we offer the largest selection of internships in the summer. We ask successful candidates to commit to an internship of 10 to 12 weeks.

The Intern Coordinator then schedules interviews with managers who have projects that align with the candidates’ interests and experience.
