Every Child Deserves a Future: For 100 years, we’ve been giving children in the U.S. and around the world a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We do whatever it takes to save children, transforming their lives and the future we share.


Save the Children supports a year round internship program centered around the academic calendar. It offers a variety of unpaid semester internship positions that provide a unique opportunity for experience and expansion of knowledge in the non-profit world.

Interns have the chance to work under the direct supervision of an experienced Save the Children staff member to help guide their development of skills within their chosen field. Their work focuses on the advancement of important strategic projects.

Internship positions are available in our Fairfield, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., and Kentucky offices. Interns work a minimum of 16 hours per week and a maximum of 40 hours a week.
