Community Action Partnership of Orange County offers internships.  The internship program is designed to provide college students and graduate students with an opportunity to learn about community building, public policy, organizing and collaborating with other agencies and corporations to fight against poverty.  We are looking for individuals who would like to research community needs and develop new approaches in fighting poverty in the Orange County. We also need individuals with marketing, fundraising, photography, and web design skills. Community Action Partnership is flexible and is always willing to place your internship to a good cause.
