Thank you for your interest in volunteering or interning with RESPOND!
We are no longer accepting applications for the fall of 2021, as all opportunities have been filled.
Dependent on covid guidelines from the CDC, Department of Public Health, the City of Somerville, and other experts, we will begin accepting applications for the spring 2022 semester starting in October.
RESPOND offers two Bachelors-level internship opportunities:
- Sarah Hancock Internship in our Community-based Programs: in this role, the intern will support survivors of domestic violence seeking safety and empowerment.
- Survivors of Abuse Feeling Empowered for Re-entry (SAFER) Internship: in this role, the intern will work with survivors who are incarcerated at the Suffolk County House of Correction.
Detailed descriptions can be found here. Both opportunities are best suited for those majoring in psychology, mental health, criminal justice, public health, or sociology, though applicants focusing on other areas of academic study may also apply.
Applications must include a resume and a thoughtful cover letter that conveys the applicant’s interest in the internship, describes relevant experiences (employment or otherwise) that relate to the work, and outlines the skills and/or assets that make the applicant a strong candidate. An applicant may also share what they hope to gain from being selected for this opportunity or how this will help them on their academic or career trajectory.
For questions about interning or to submit an application for internship, please contact RESPOND’s Manager of Community-Based Programs at (617) 625-5996 or by emailing email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic and out of an abundance of caution,
we have currently suspended most of our volunteer engagement.
We look forward to welcoming volunteers back into our programs as soon as it is safe to do so. Support from our many dedicated volunteers brings us one step closer to ending domestic violence in our community. RESPOND offers a variety of opportunities for both individuals and groups to get involved. From direct service to answering the support line, clerical work or manual labor, there are many ways to lend your expertise, time, and talents!
