If you are a college student or recent graduate, OAR invites you to join us for a 10-week internship experience filled with meaningful work, learning opportunities, and great colleagues.
As a full-time programs and outreach summer intern, you will immediately become a member of OAR’s staff team, work closely with key staff members on projects of high value to the autism community and OAR, and gain meaningful work experience in a nonprofit organization with a national focus.
The ideal intern is a dynamic individual who is interested in autism and shares OAR’s passion for helping people with autism and their families. OAR is looking for applicants who excel at detail-oriented work, but think strategically and never lose sight of a greater purpose. For summer 2018, summer interns can expect to support OAR’s social media, outreach communications, research programs, and resource development.
Reflecting on her internship last summer, Kyleigh McGrail, now a sophomore studying public relations at Auburn University, said, “I had the privilege of interning with OAR for three months. Having just finished my freshman year at Auburn, I am so grateful that OAR took a chance on me. I had the opportunity to help create a college guide for students with ASD, and every idea I had was supported. The staff is small but incredibly passionate and helps individuals with autism and their families throughout the entire country — one of the things that amazes me the most about this organization.”
Summer interns work full time for a 10-week period between June and August. OAR offers a modest stipend and potential for class credit pending school approval. The OAR office is located within a short walking distance of the Court House Metro station (Orange Line) in Arlington, Va.
