The Alliance Health Project (AHP) is not accepting Intern applications for the 2017–18 internship year.
We are working on new approaches to support the work of AHP and provide educational opportunities for recent graduates interested in our mission to support the mental health and wellness of the LGBTQ and HIV-affected communities in constructing healthy and meaningful lives. Thank you for your interest and support.
See our Volunteer page to learn about other ways to be involved at AHP.
The Alliance Health Project began its Post-Baccalaureate Internship Program in 1991. Today, as a one-year program for recent college graduates interested in the health professions, social services, or nonprofit management, it has become an integral part of the agency’s structure.
Interns help AHP better manage the volume of high-quality services we offer, but also the internship grooms future mental health, social service, and public health providers with exposure to the frontline experience of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) and HIV-related support and care. The program provides interns the opportunity to give back to the community while learning valuable skills and fostering their professional growth. Past interns have gone on to enjoy successful careers in medicine, psychology, public health, social work, and public interest law.
This description can’t begin to communicate the experience in store for interns. We promise you will be challenged and enriched. Whether you are talking with clients about their HIV risk or doing research for one of our blog posts, you will never doubt the importance of your work. And, among the more than 200 people associated with AHP, you will find some of the most expert, dedicated, and caring co-workers on the planet. We hope you will join us.
