Do you want to help promote healthy relationships and prevent dating violence in California?
Do you want to be part of a team that is promoting social change through
state-level leadership, advocacy and capacity building?
The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence is recruiting undergraduate and graduate student interns to work with our Prevention Program. Specifically we are recruiting:
- A Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month campaign coordinator
- Teen dating abuse policy research interns
Interns will meet with staff at least once a week either in person or by phone and communicate by email as needed. In person meetings can be held at either our Sacramento office or in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Partnership's Prevention Program advances effective dating abuse prevention policies and programs through leadership, advocacy, and a statewide network of prevention advocates dedicated to promoting healthy relationships and preventing dating abuse.
Here’s what a few recent interns have had to say about their experiences:
“Interning at the Partnership gave me incredible insights into state-level policy work. The staff at the Partnership work incredibly hard to move policy issues forward. I was able to learn a lot about teen dating violence prevention, how a state coalition works, and how to engage directly in legislative advocacy.” - UC Berkeley Graduate Intern 2011
"Working with the Partnership has been beyond rewarding. As a young, passionate activist and student, having the opportunity to take on several important and fascinating projects was a challenge, but a sincerely enriching one. I’ve learned so much, not only about the complexity of issues like domestic violence and teen dating violence, but also about how I operate in a non-profit setting." - Summer 2011 Undergraduate Intern
“I had a very positive and rewarding experience interning at the Partnership. I learned about teen dating violence prevention work, and gained hands-on experiences in prevention advocacy. I worked alongside the Prevention Program Manager and was able to ask questions and interact with her easily, always getting helpful feedback on my work. Everyone at the Partnership was very welcoming and encouraged participation.” - UC Davis Undergraduate Intern 2010
