The City of Columbia’s Career Awareness Related Experience (C.A.R.E.) program is seeking unpaid interns/volunteers. C.A.R.E. is an excellent place for interns, practicum students, and volunteers to gain valuable experience. In addition, each summer, we hire approximately 10 summer job coaches, and being an unpaid intern often times leads to becoming a paid summer job coach (if that is something that interests you). Each semester, the C.A.R.E. program benefits greatly from “employing” many unpaid interns/volunteers, and in return offers them many great learning experiences, such as working with a government agency, social services programming, and diverse populations. C.A.R.E. internships offer a balance of working hands-on with at-risk youth and administrative work.

The C.A.R.E. program works with at-risk 14- to 20-year-olds who live in the City of Columbia, MO and/or attend a Columbia, MO school. High-risk teenagers face many barriers to joining the labor force.
