YWCA Sonoma County



"I had an experience that helped me grow as an individual and form connections with people. I learned a lot and got to make the children smile by being their support. This was the best part about interning at the preschool."

- Kristine, 2012 Child Advocate Intern


YWCA provides several internship opportunities to students, recent graduates, and community members looking to gain work experience in human services, social work, and domestic violence advocacy.  Our internships allow you to work alongside staff to contribute to our program, provide services directly to clients and participate in many aspects of case management. 

Our interns are often interested in criminal justice, psychology, therapy and counseling, family law, child development, and social work.  We strive to give each intern valuable learning experineces toward working in these fields with both adults and children.  We have three specific internship programs that can be completed as listed, or in combination with other volunteer roles at the YWCA.
