Interns are a vital part of our team and they do a variety of work depending on our current needs. We strive to create a valuable learning experience to best support those interested in nonprofit work and becoming more involved in the Society. Although internships are unpaid, they can count for school credit. Please check with your school advisor to learn how this process works at your school or through your educational program.
To inquire about internships please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at GetInvolved@nmss.org or by calling 800-344-4867 (option 2) for more information.

What Interns Say About the Experience:
"The internship gave me the best hands on experience in graphic design. I worked on many different projects that allowed me to use my creative ideas and apply what I learned from the classroom. The best part is everything that I designed was actually used in the media and at the events! I was so proud of my work and kept every piece. It's a great way to build your portfolio. You will also get to learn about the work being done in the organization, the experience is truly worth it."
Graphic Design Intern
Graduate, Westminster College
“My internship at the National MS Society was incredible. Right from the start I was able to dive into a variety of projects that gave me practical experience in public relations. Working with the staff taught me things I could never learn in the classroom. The work I did allowed me to develop my skills in writing beyond what I thought I could do and helped me strengthen areas where I needed improvement. It was a valuable and rewarding experience.”

“Interning at the National MS Society was a dream come true. It provided me with the opportunity to practice what I had been learning in my classes plus so much more. I was able to work alongside the staff and my supervisor, developing programs that had an impact on individual’s lives. What has made a lasting impression on my life was the ability to attend and assist in a program for clients that I coordinated. I am grateful for the experience and the new found confidence in my abilities.”
