INTERNSHIPS:

Interns are an integral part of the LAA’s work and operations. From working directly with clients to planning events to community organizing, we have internships for everyone. The LAA offers monthly, semester, summer and year-long internships. College credit can be earned through internships as applicable.

AVAILABLE INTERNSHIPS:

1) PROGRAMS
Internships are available within LAA’s Education, Family Well-Being and Economic Empowerment focus areas. Interns will focus on direct service delivery, program planning, program management and more.

2) RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT
Interns will assist with fundraising, marketing and engagement, communications, grant writing, research and event planning.

3) ADVOCACY
Interns conduct research, prepare reports and create presentations; organize community constituents and conduct outreach. Additionally, they will assist with coalition-building initiatives and develop strategies to raise awareness of issues impacting the Latino community and more.

4) LEGAL
Internships are available for 2L and 3L law students. Legal internships provide course credit and are available Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. Interns can choose to work under all of the LAA’s legal services areas or select one focus area. These include general immigration legal services, domestic violence legal services and removal defense, among others.
