BENEFITS OF BEING A GHH INTERN
GHH interns work on projects specifically pertaining to individual interests and/or coursework. Whether you’re an event intern implementing fundraising events, or a web intern improving our website, you will be given work in which you are passionate about. No coffee shop-runners here!
Be a part of a wonderful cause! Serve the local Orange County community!
GHH solely exists to serve Orange County women, children, and elderly in need. Interns will have the opportunity to see the impact that their work has on the lives of each GHH client. GHH partners with several other local non-profit organizations in the community. Aside from learning about the inner-workings of GHH, interns will have the opportunity to learn about the Orange County non-profit industry as a whole.
While GHH asks each of its interns to be committed for at least one school semester/quarter or summer session, we are extremely flexible about when and how you complete your hours each week. We want to work with you to accommodate your scheduling needs.
GHH seeks to build strong relationships with every person involved in the organization. Get to know other GHH staff and interns!
