JFF Summer Internship Program

Overview

JFF is excited to announce our 2021 Summer Internship Program! We are looking for driven individuals to join our team full time and contribute to JFF’s work.

The program offers a wide range of opportunities to learn about the inner workings of an equity-centered, innovative, and mission-driven organization while developing valuable skills and knowledge that will be key to future career success.

Over the course of the 11-week program, interns will get a firsthand introduction to the operations, programs, and people of JFF and learn about our exciting work and achievements. They will work closely with team members on one or more high-impact projects within a specific unit.

We’re offering internships throughout the entire organization, including the strategy, policy, technology, research, communications, data analysis, development, and operations units.

Interns will be paid a competitive hourly rate, commensurate with skills and experience, and they will work 30 to 40 hours per week.
