About Internships

Our internship program is designed to give each individual a diverse and rewarding experience while working towards fulfilling our mission.

Internships provide individuals with hands-on learning opportunities while allowing them to grow and succeed. Although all internships are unpaid, students interested in a career in the non-profit sector will find a wealth of experience by working with the Make-A-Wish San Diego office.
