The Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MCASA) advocates for accessible, compassionate care for survivors, the prevention of sexual assault, and accountability for all offenders. MCASA actively works to end sexual violence in the State of Maryland through professional training, public outreach, public policy advocacy, technical assistance, and legal services.
Through hands-on learning responsibilities, MCASA’s program interns are engaged in the important effort to end rape, child sexual abuse, and the full continuum of sexual violence including campus sexual assault and human sex trafficking. They are exposed to the latest thinking in the field of sexual assault prevention and response through webinars and trainings, professional meetings, and written resource materials. Program interns also come away with practical knowledge about a statewide nonprofit organization’s strategies for office management, internal and external communications, professional training, and public outreach.
A minimum commitment of 15 hours per week is required. Interns are encouraged to work with their academic institutions to seek credit.
This internship is located at our metro-accessible Silver Spring, MD office.
