At National Breast Cancer Foundation, we offer a competitive Internship Program that provides valuable and marketable work-force skills, as well as a comprehensive education on the inner workings of a non-profit. We strive to prepare our interns for future employment opportunities with effective communication skills, resume and interview support, and an understanding of how to adapt to different personalities and workplace cultures. We believe in a program that values the skills that the student brings to the table, as well as one that provides rewarding and challenging work to allow the intern to have a very engaging and worthwhile experience.
