Six Rivers DRC provides short and long term internships for high school students, college and university undergraduates, and graduate students. Interns may receive educational credit and/or compensation. Six Rivers provides skill-building mentorship to interns in exchange for the help they provide. Over the years, interns have been involved in providing and designing services, administrative tasks, outreach and communications, and more.
Interns leave Six Rivers with experience with conflict resolution services, theory, and practice; an understanding of the administrative functions required to maintain a service oriented nonprofit; real world research, writing, and submission of grants; communication skills, not only as a conflict resolution practitioner, but also in a workplace and professional setting; Support and encouragement from Six Rivers staff; and a professional reference for any job applications submitted post-internship.
