2024 Summer Internships

We need your support to make this summer a success! Individuals and organizations in Dane County can support in the following ways:

  • Host an intern: We work with a variety of organizations in Dane County to place highly qualified interns in paid positions. Our typical internship period is 8 weeks, from June 17 to August 9.  Applications are due no later than March 29, 2024. Check back soon for more information and our application form!



  • Volunteer to host a professional development workshop: Throughout the summer, our interns will participate in Friday workshops led by employer partners and community members to build career readiness skills and become more prepared for their future careers. Some of last year’s workshops included: 

Employee Rights (Foley & Lardner LLP)

Financial Literacy: Budgeting & Credit (Summit Credit Union)

Workplace Resource Groups (Thermo Fisher Scientific)

  • Sponsor an internship: Unpaid internship experiences perpetuate inequality, and create barriers for access to opportunities. We pay all of our interns a minimum of $15/hour, and the support of our donors helps to maximize the number of students we can connect to these opportunities!

How do I learn more?


“Our intern is really efficient and detail oriented! She’s been an awesome, positive addition to our team and is helping our summer production season run smoothly. – Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra (2023)

“Getting the chance to work alongside architect professionals was a dream come true. They introduced the daily life and workload of an architect while reminding me that having fun makes a huge difference.” – J.A., Erdman Intern (2023)

This was a really valuable experience. Having a younger person in the office brings a different perspective that we don’t typically have in our staff. This also gives us a chance to build our pipeline of potential candidates and general connectedness in the Madison community. Lastly but not least, our intern brought great energy and was ultimately a fun and positive person to join our office this summer. He will be missed!” –National Council on Crime & Delinquency

I enjoyed my internship this summer because of all the experiences I had with my coworkers and supervisor. They were extremely welcoming, and the time I had with them felt very nice. I’ve learned a lot of personal things along this way and one of my highlights was when we all ate Indian food in the small room and just had a good laugh”. -T.T., Curate Intern, Class of 2019

“Our intern brought joy to the job. He knew how to connect with every staff member. He showed enthusiasm with each task. His attitude is always so bright and pleasant.” – Urban Triage (2023)
