Students will work 10-40 hours per week, based on availability, at the YWCA Midtown Center. Internships begin on or near Tuesday, September 8, and will run through the fall semester, with the possibility of renewing for the spring semester.

This internship will heavily involve research and analysis in the areas of racial justice and women’s economic empowerment, especially immigrants’ rights, criminal justice reform, and the wealth gap. Interns may also be responsible for some project management and meeting and event coordination.

We are looking for highly-motivated students with strong writing and research skills, a sharp analysis of race, gender, and identity, and a demonstrated interest in social justice. The ideal candidate has a deep commitment to personal growth and learning and is highly curious and inquisitive about new subjects.

Students should have completed at least four semesters of course work. The internship will primarily be office-based but could include occasional attendance at offsite meetings in Tulsa or Oklahoma City.
