Internships at the Connecticut
Coalition to End Homelessness
The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness, in partnership with members and communities throughout the state, creates change through leadership, advocacy, and building the capacity of members and the field to respond to environmental challenges. Our collective mission is to prevent and end homelessness in Connecticut.
Significant projects include research, grassroots organizing, communications and coalition development related to efforts to end homelessness. Each placement has a staff supervisor/mentor who will oversee the work, which usually involves a good deal of variety and several projects. These internships are appropriate for those seeking academic credit, work experience and a collegial, flexible environment.
