The Beneficial Pain Internship allows college students to gain hands-on experience in the non-profit sector. We empower our interns to create initiatives, birth social media campaigns, and advocate for issues they believe in, using whatever resources we have available. We do our best to foster an environment of growth and supporting the development of our interns. 


Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to pay our interns. Everyone on staff is unpaid. However, we aim to show our appreciation through professional development and social opportunities. Some exceptions are made to high-school students who are interested in the internship program.


Anyone interested in the internship should send a resume and their area of interest to Jerel Archer, Director of People (
