We are currently accepting applications for the summer for both the Community Advocate and Communications Internships.

To express interest in becoming a Community Advocate Intern at Hope Works, you must be committed to community empowerment, organizational and workforce development, human resources, or social work. 

The Communications Internship is designed for students looking to develop their professional skill-set regarding online communications, social media, grant research and writing, and event-planning.  An ideal applicant is passionate about story telling and is eager to engage Hope Works' donors and clients.

Internships are currently unpaid, however, there are opportunities for students to receive academic credit for internships.

Interns will be expected to commit at least 10 hours of in-person time to Hope Works (6414 South Cottage Grove, Chicago, IL) per week. Interns will be expected to keep a weekly work schedule which will be collaboratively developed by the intern and Hope Works staff.
