For those of you interested in more information about finding internships–in general and/or for SOC credits–please take advantage of the following resources:
- Volunteer Match – http://www.volunteermatch.org/
In addition to helping individuals find volunteer opportunities with non-profit organizations, Volunteer Match also lists internship opportunities. The easiest way to find available internships is to use the Advanced Search feature, which allows you to narrow down selections based on your zip code and preferred cause areas (e.g. Advocacy & Human Rights, LGBT, Environment, Race & Ethnicity) and also to search for keywords (such as “internship”). For your convenience, here is a link to current internship opportunities near Seattle, WA (98105) across all cause areas: Volunteer Match – Current Seattle Internships
Be sure to sign up for SOC 404 to get upper division SOC elective credits for your internship, whether you find it through Volunteer Match or other means!
