Internships, Jobs, and Volunteer Opportunities Internships
Are you a Jewish college student who is going home to the Bay Area for the summer? Do you want to get paid to work at a Jewish nonprofit? Learn more about the Kohn internship program at   www.jvs.org/kohn

Jewish college students who have completed at least one year of school are invited to apply for the Kohn Summer Internship Program. Interns are placed at Bay Area Jewish nonprofits for eight weeks. This is a paid internship program with free professional development seminars. Applicants who identify as Jews of Color and/ or queer are encouraged to apply. You will build in-demand skills, make connections and grow professionally.

Jvalley Magazine is looking for student interns who would be interested in working on events, working on the magazine or working on social media.  This would be an unpaid internship but we are very happy to work within whatever school guidelines there are to ensure they would receive appropriate class credit if that is allowed.  The ideal candidates would be fluent in social media (facebook, twitter, website design); journalism or communication/public relations majors, and/or graphic design.

For more information, please contact Barb Chappell at barb@jvalley.org
