Are you a student at the University of Montana? Become a WEN intern to fulfill a service learning requirement or earn internship credits. WEN offers services and opportunities to undergraduate students and graduate students alike. We work hard to find ways to incorporate our volunteer’s individual interests and creativity into their work. Please note that volunteer training will not count towards service learning hours. AmeriCorps Internships are also available through WEN.
Internships with WEN are dispersed among our many programs depending upon the interest of the student and the number of credit hours needed. Internships are typically limited to 1-2 credits, translating to 3-10 hours/week.
An internship with WEN will often involve some field component, but can be focused a number of different ways. Some past projects and examples include: field program assistant, curriculum development, WEN Flagship program assistant, technology, community outreach, equipment and database management, grant development and more. We are open to your ideas!
