Priority Deadlines

We accept applications on a rolling basis. Typically, our internships are available seasonally as follows:

  • Summer Internships: May–August
  • Fall Internships: September–December
  • Winter Internships: January–March

The Decision Process

You will receive an email confirmation of our receipt of your application materials. We regret that we are unable to respond to status inquiries over the phone. Applications will continue to be reviewed until positions are full; however, applications received before the deadlines will be given priority.

Applicants will be notified by email should they be chosen to participate in an interview with the Volunteer Program Manager and the Rehabilitation Manager.
