CASA's Communications Internship Program offers a front-seat experience in how journalism, social media, and outreach are used to uplift our community's underrepresented voices and provide broad exposure to social justice and human rights for immigrants nationwide.

The Internship Experience

Every semester, interns are guided under the mentorship of the CASA Communications Team and support public relations, social media, and project-based scopes of work. In addition, interns receive the opportunity to interact with other departments and the community to provide a personable and integrative experience and gain knowledge in writing and composition, media relations, event planning, market research and analysis, community relations, brand strategy, and marketing communications. 

The internship is offered three times a year: Spring, Summer, and Fall. Each intern is encouraged to learn the basics of communications industry tools like Canva, Meltwater, Adobe Suite, Facebook Business Manager, and/or WordPress. For a culminating project at the end of the program, interns will develop a comprehensive communications campaign which will be presented to the team at the conclusion of the internship. The campaign will demonstrate skills attained throughout the internship program and add to the work portfolio of the intern.

The internship offers a $1,000 stipend and the opportunity to earn a resume review and career counseling.
