If you’re a mission-focused undergraduate or graduate college student seeking a meaningful internship experience, then we invite you to apply to our program—a rare opportunity to explore and enrich your future career prospects while serving others.

Red Cross interns are involved in projects critical to the day-to-day work of our non-profit organization, gaining an insider’s perspective on the Red Cross humanitarian mission as well as service delivery at the local and national levels.

Our formal internship program typically runs for a specified 10-week duration (alternative start and end dates may be accommodated at the discretion of the business unit). Start and end dates for other internship cycles are flexible, based on student availability and school schedule.

Available positions vary according to our needs, but the program typically offers opportunities in almost every Red Cross line of business.


You must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program at the time of internship to be eligible.
