As part of our Young Women’s Leadership Project, the Feminist Women’s Health Center offers one of the most unique leadership building opportunities for college and university level students. FWHC offers in-depth, hands-on experience in a feminist nonprofit setting coupled with a breadth of experience across our departments. Our internships are unpaid but offer a wealth of knowledge, connections and meaningful relationships.

We ask that you completely review the information on this page as well as familiarize yourself with the various internships available. .

FWHC offers Fall, Spring, and Summer internships. Certain internships are only available during certain sessions. Please click the links below to view all the options for the different areas.

Our program gives students an opportunity to experience the realities of working in a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring reproductive health, rights, and justice for all women. Interns come from across the U.S. as well as from Georgia. Most interns are college students (undergraduate and graduate); however, enrollment in college is not required.
